In the field of healthcare, there could be witnessed various reasons for the increasing risk of diseases in a vulnerable population. I second the view, being presented in the given discussion that financial weak and homeless people are unprotected from the onset of diseases. It is correctly stated in this discussion poverty increases the risk of non-communicable diseases such as cancer and heart diseases. I think there is a close link between poor health conditions and poverty worldwide (Parsell,et,al,2018). I have personally witnessed that people who are homeless and do not have any proper place to live, fail to adjust with continuously changing environment as they used to wander around mostly. Every time, vagrants come across new environmental conditions that weakens their immune system as well (Spencer,et,al,2018). As far as I have noticed, poverty and homelessness make people suffer from despair which leads them to a row of health issues. I totally agree with the observation quoted in this discussion that people who lack money find it difficult to get diagnosed with the diseases at the initial level that makes the situation worse. Poor people also find it hard to provide the basic medical facilities to their children. Wandering people are likely at the risk of various health issues. During a survey, I have personally observed that poor and homeless people are subjected to more psychological and physiological issues.
Taking a look at the present health conditions, I have seen that one of the most common targets of physical and psychological issues are adolescent pregnant girls. As per the reliable resources, I have observed that girls, who become mothers during their adolescence, face more issues than the rest. Undoubtedly, no one including me, could deny the fact that parental stage brings many responsibilities. In most of the stress conditions, adolescent mothers fall of a victim of many diseases and depressions becomes the common (Guilamo-Ramos,et,al,2018). I support the opinion and idea being presented in this discussion that adolescent pregnant girls must be assisted by the loved one so that they could be saved from possible threats that may prove fatal to their health (Oman,et,al,2018). I completely agree with the point that has been mentioned in this discussion that not only the teenager homeless mothers are vulnerable to healthcare issues but their babies as well. The idea that homelessness brings early motherhood for young girls is one of the most notable points that have been highlighted in the ongoing discussion. According to me, all the facts that have been mentioned in this discussion are valid. Especially fact about the increased mortality rate of newly born children could be viewed as the most important issue across the world.
