Reverse the Epidemic Tides of Unhealthy Habits: Personal, Professional, and Leadership Challenges

  • Rick Botelho


Politics, economics, and health are interdependent. Inequalities in the economic domain have profound negative impacts on the health domain [1]. This chapter challenges the prevailing worldview and values inherent in the power and control structures within our political, financial, and disease care systems. Political philosophies and public policies have mal-distributed money, power, and resources at global and national levels that favor the 1 % economic elite of the population.
