Improving Public Health Essay

by Efe16

Some people say that the best way to improve public health is by increasing the number of sports facilities. Others, however, say that this would have little effect on public health and that other measures are required.

Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.


It is argued by some people that the most efficient method for improving and developing public health is by building more sports facilities; whereas, some people claim that this would not have any significant effect on public health; therefore, other solutions should be thought. In my opinion, doing exercise contributes human beings’ health more than we can imagine, but there are certainly better ways to improve public health rather than the increase in number of facilities.

To begin, some people view to open new sports centers as the best way of developing public health as doing physical exercises increases the stamina of human beings by improving their cardiovascular capacities. Furthermore, it contributes to the human well-being not only on physically but also on mentally. More time is spent on sport facilities, less time to think about other issues, relieving human’s mind; thus, we can see more peaceful people everywhere.

On the other hand, it is thought by some that there are also other measures for improving public health better than the new sports centers. One of these is educating people about health care because if they would know what to do when they feel sick, they can get well much quicker. Other method is cleaning of the public areas such as trains or libraries should be done more frequently because possible viruses around these areas could affect humans’ health in serious way. Last possible way is that foods and drinks on the markets should be regulated more strictly because there has been a hot debate in recent years about possible harms of GMOs on human health; therefore, regulations of government on food and beverages would be a wise choice.

Even though an increase in the number of sports facilities can develop public health importantly, I do not think that it is the best idea for public’s health, so other views can have more direct effects on public health.
