Vulnerable in America (via) and World
In America and in the world today, there are millions upon millions of vulnerable persons.
They are vulnerable due to many causes (un- or underinsured; poor education, un- or under-employment, poor housing, etc). Their vulnerabilities range widely (e.g., low ability, low motivation, low performance, diminished quality of life, high developmental risks for children, high risk for adverse events, short life expectancy for newborns & children, short adult life expectancy). Many persons have multiple vulnerabilities. Vulnerabilities may change over time.
While we have many people who are vulnerable today, many more people are at risk of vulnerability in the years ahead. Further, many people are affected by family and friends who have vulnerabilities.
To rectify this, communities, America and the rest of the world need a sustainable strategy to stop actions that push people down to more vulnerable states and to support actions that lift people out of vulnerability. We need a sustainable system in which vulnerability is minimized for all and all thrive.
The path ahead offers many opportunities to tackle both the overarching issue of vulnerability and specific interventions that minimize vulnerability and maximize thriving.
There is an opportunity to tackle the overall issue of vulnerability in communities, America and the world. There is an opportunity to work on a person-centered strategy that moves beyond the limitations of “stovepipe” programs that tend to only address specific subpopulations or specific programmatic interventions.
We can bring about an overarching model and strategy that: addresses whole communities, America and the world, involves specific subpopulation or issue interventions to play a constructive role, assesses the benefit (real or projected) that such interventions have on reducing overall vulnerability and maximizing overall thriving, and, most importantly, perpetually prevents/minimizes vulnerability and maximizes thriving in communities, America and the world.
"via” Endgame Strategy
For example, here are four overarching strategies that can help minimize vulnerability, maximize health, and/or maximize thriving on a sustained basis.
Thrive! is an endeavor and the call to action for building a thriving future for people, communities, nations and world. Go to: ThrivingFuture.org It uses viaFuture to create and sustain a thriving future for a population, and/or cross-cutting issue.
viaFuture provides the vision for creating and sustaining change and a thriving future coupled with the necessary enhanced ability (next generation strategy/models/tools) and the necessary strong motivation. For more on "viaFuture", go to: viaFuture.org
Vulnerable [Vulnerable In America and World (via)] is where 1) we analyze a) who are the most vulnerable persons and why, b) what forces are increasing/reducing vulnerability, and c) what strategy would minimize vulnerability and maximize thriving on a sustained basis and 2) we then proceed to execute best strategy as an ongoing effort with ongoing evaluation and adjustments.
HealthePeople [Building a Healthy and Thriving Future] is where we maximize health via a high performance health system with the following characteristics: a) person-centered health, b) care in the community, c) quality and health improvement, d) solving the un- and underinsured problem, e) virtual health system(s), f) achieving high health status.
