Health Belief

Health Belief
Society’s social principles are important in efforts to promote health and prevent disease. To companies and health researchers, it is a major tool for conducting a study to find out the cure and preventive measures for diseases.
Health belief is surrounded by varying cultural and political factors globally. The study of patients ‘ medical views on the various treatment methods that occur in all traditional societies is that each approach has its own clinical theories, causes, and healing mode. Treatment modality decisions are strongly dependent on the type of views patients have about the disorder and their social support network. Health beliefs help health researchers and clinicians create effective approaches to increase awareness of risk, encourage self-efficacy for weight loss and patterns of physical activity, and decrease disease rates (Jones, Roche $ Appel, 2009). This will promote a disease-free nation.
Children are a major beneficiary of health beliefs. The children’s Health Model has been established and it emphasizes the role of the caretaker influences on children’s health beliefs and actions. The role of the caretaker is to motivate the child, ensuring the child’s illness is treated and ensuring the child perceived benefits from medicines. Perceived benefits refer to believe in the advantages of the methods suggested for reducing the risk of the disease resulting from a particular behavior (Sharma, 2016). This will decrease the levels of mortality rates.
Medical values should benefit drug-making companies. As the public continues to have a positive belief that the medications are successful, the company will be able to predict habits of consumer safety. The government will be able to collect information to determine which population will be affected in order to satisfy its citizens.
