INTRODUCTIONHealth promotion is referred as a procedure by which individuals develop awareness withregards to their well-being. In context to this, there are many governmental and privateorganisations focusing on offering information to the society in order to take appropriate stepsfor improving their health. Health promotion also focuses on the behaviour of an individualtowards environmental and the society interventions. The present report will analyse twoscenarios that covers the efforts of socio-economic influences on health. Furthermore, it consistsof various models and factors which are included in health promotion. It also includespromotional campaign developed to meet certain objectives.TASK 11.1 Impact of socio-economic influences on healthSocio-economic can be referred as a broad term used to determine various factors such asincome, education, occupation etc. In context to this, there are various elements that affect thehealth such as lifestyle choices, unemployment, discrimination and access to information.According to scenario, there are around 70,000 homeless people in UK, who experience a highlevel of stress, tension and mental illness. The homelessness encourages or forces them to reducestress through various types of drugs, alcohol or smoking. They think it will help them to copeup with their stress or mental illness; the research concluded that between 70 to 90% of homelessadults are addicted to smoking. Due to lack of money, these people start smoking hand rolledcigarettes without filters using recycled tobacco which is very dangerous for people; as groupsmoking increases the chances of illness and cancer. These practices are highly influencingpeople health and it also increased the rate of throat and mouth cancer among homeless people.Due to unemployment and poverty, people are exposed to these situations of drug and smokeaddiction as compared to own choices. People are getting used to drugs, alcohol and cigarettes asthey feel it helps to reduce stress or mental pressure but indirectly they are harming their ownhealth. The lifestyle of people has a great effect on an individual health, for example: a personwho can't buy healthy food will not be able to gain good health. This is clearly observed thatpeople with low income are comparatively unhealthy and addicted to smoke, drugs and alcohol.1
1.2 Government sources in reporting on inequalities in healthThere are various laws and regulations developed by the government that are needed tobe considered or followed by various health-care organisations. In context to this, government ofUK utilises various media, and marketing tools such as hoardings, newspaper etc in order tospread awareness related to health. The Government tried to develop and publish various articlesand information about community health as well as people living in it. There are variouscampaigns made by government in order to help people to quit smoking or any other drugs.Many rehabilitation centres are established to help people who are addicted to any drug, alcoholor tobacco smoking.The Acheson Report published in 2013, represented that the existence of inequalitiesrelated to health and relation among various social classes. This report determined that themortality rate is very low; the upper class people may faces rapid mortality decline. In the year2014, UK government published another report; Skadon Mavron which distinguishes people invarious groups, and with regards to the research, death rate in segment 5thwas twice as comparedto the death rate in segment 1st.Furthermore, this gap among the death rate in two classes is increasing with a high rate,many of the government research or surveys by census have concluded that over 170 millionpeople all around the world die due to various kinds of cancer every year. The main reason foundfor the cancer in people was due to consumption of cigarettes or any other form of tobacco. It isvery important for the government to ensure people are getting aware of consequences caused bycigarettes or tobacco consumption. There are various other surveys which found out that peoplewith low level of income are highly exposed to drugs, alcohol and tobacco consumption and thereason is lack of education or awareness. This causes inequalities in health between t poor andrich people.1.3 Barriers to access health-care servicesThere are numerous boundaries in getting to medicinal services, among which one of thefundamental reasons is absence of assets. A large portion of the people in their high school needin having legitimate direction as a result of which they succumb to wrong exercises whichinfluence their well-being. Absence of appropriate correspondence is another reason which goesabout as a boundary in getting to medicinal services. Guardians and watchmen ought to haveappropriate correspondence with their kids which will help in giving them legitimate learning2
