Paradigm is aims to provide a platform for our ideas, vision, and action. In the medical world, there are two kinds of paradigms, namely health paradigm and ill paradigm. In its development paradigm is becoming obsolete and ill switch to healthier paradigm. But in some countries, the paradigm of illness is still maintained, for example Indonesia. Why does this happen?
In this section, writer give two reasons why it’s happen. Before we go further, I give about the differences in this paradigm. Paradigm of illness is looking health as a necessity consumptive, wasteful, and consider health is an attempt to heal the sick. While the health paradigm, realizing the importance of health as an investment, so that health needs to be maintained.
Paradigm adopted by a country can be seen from each of the resulting policy. Indonesia Indonesia certainly still using paradigm of illness, because health in Indonesia has not been ogled as an investment. Just look at the budget for health, curative is more dominant than promotive.
Two things that might be the reason why Indonesia prefers paradigm of illness. First, policy makers do not understand that the health paradigm is the best solution for building a healthy society. Second, due to the factors of deliberate attempts to corruption and collusion. More precisely the efforts of policy makers to seek personal gain than the prosperity of the people.
