After writing close to a 100 articles on CuraHOPE, I came to a stark realization. Even the most somber and truthful story about the current state of the healthcare system is hard to drive concrete action if there is no drive which people can act on, and no follow on actions for someone to easily take be it making a donation, signing up for membership etc. All the views and reads become part of a statistic, that do little to help advance true cures in the current state of healthcare.
Healthcare innovation, do stories about real sufferings and current medical research result in concrete action?
To combat against this phenomenon, I have decided to train, learn and embark on a year long book authorship experiment, to speak to the experts, to get them to share with me their stories, and to finally share with everyone here what they tell me in words and sentences, one which I hope can invoke a movement. As a content platform, CuraHOPE is capped by constraints and effort cannot easily scale. I need a smarter way to tell the story that I have been sharing here on CuraHOPE for months and the idea for years.
By 2019, I hope to be able to publish a book which goes in depth and seek to show everyone what healthcare is about and what are the disincentives present.
Until then, know that I will be working hard to come up with the concept CuraHOPE was always about. This does not mean that I will not be posting any more posts, simply that the form in which I will be taking to share stories will be vastly different from how I have been doing it.
Alzheimer is a progressive neurological condition. People suffering from Alzheimer will progressively experience a fall in cognitive ability, and increasingly severe memory loss. This can lead to an immense sense of loss for sufferers, and cause huge changes in personality. Now, a new research recently claimed that a drink containing fish oils, which is also available over the counter (OTC) could slow down the progressive nature of the disease.
The HIV crisis is very real. There has been a phenomenon known as HIV/AIDS denialism that is so rampant that it even has its own Wikipedia page here. However, facts do not lie, and we do see a prevalent spread in the disease across multiple countries, especially in developing countries. Now, Japan is pushing back against the virus, and seeking to sponsor free checks to encourage early detection and treatment of the condition.
Today, something special has happened to CuraHOPE. I have decided to add a new category, known as “CuraHOPE Campaigns” into this media site to help patients and sufferers who are fighting against incurable diseases, chronic conditions and expensive healthcare. I hope you can read these stories, feel the emotional turmoil that the patients are going through, and support them in any minute way you can. Foreword: CuraHOPE did not get any financial reward/incentives in covering this story, we are simply hoping to increase awareness.
The art of healing started out as a noble profession, designed to provide care and treatment to people who needed it the most. However, the truth for the current state of the healthcare system cannot be grimmer. Globally, billions of people lack access to the care they need to sustain a healthy and productive life. A recent FEE article published mentioned that the price of healthcare has been increasing, and even the cost of adequate health insurance is growing. This increase in price has excluded many people who need clinical and hospital care out of an avenue to seek the care they need to stay healthy.
