CDC Recommendations

The significance of preventing the instances of HPV among young women must be recognized in the U.S. community. It is crucial to do everything possible to minimize the number of disease contractions among the vulnerable population. For this purpose, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, 2016) have designed an elaborate set of recommendations for girls and young women. Particularly, CDC insists that HPV vaccinations should be used to avoid further emotional distress and the associated issues, as well as HPV itself.

Risk Behaviors

The lack of care in choosing sexual partners and the refusal to use protection when having intercourse is listed among the key risk behaviors that may lead to the contraction of HPV and the development of the associated symptoms (Gillison, Chaturvedi, Anderson, & Fakhry, 2015). Indeed, seeing that the infection is transferred through any of the types of sexual intercourse (i.e., vaginal, oral, and anal ones) (Gillison et al., 2015). Therefore, the choice of a sexual behavior defines the threat of contracting an HPV to a considerable extent. Problematic and, particularly, promiscuous sexual behavior should be deemed as the primary factor that contributes to the contraction of HPV (CDC, 2016).

The decision to Immunize: Social, Cultural, and Legal Factors

Among the key social factors, the perception of vaccination in the community must be mentioned. The impact of media as a cultural factor also affects the choices made by the target population. Finally, the regulations concerning the responsibility of informing the partner about one’s diseases can be regarded as a legal factor.

Interventions Decreasing Risks

A program aimed at raising awareness among the target population is likely to become a powerful tool for improving the current situation. Using modern media, one may draw attention to the issue. As a result, healthy behaviors can be promoted to the vulnerable population (Gillison et al., 2015).

Demographics and Congress

Dear Frederica Wilson,

I am writing to you regarding the issue of PPO and EPO biller members and the services offered by the identified healthcare providers (221 health care services, 2016). While the regulation that has been introduced into the current Miami healthcare environment is a step in the right direction, it seems that certain improvements should be introduced into it so that opportunities for vulnerable populations in Miami, FL.

At present, the residents of the Miami area are very diverse and include a range of ethnicities and cultures. Unfortunately, some of the ethnic and cultural minorities are underrepresented in the modern Miami healthcare environment. As a result, the specified population becomes extremely vulnerable since its members may find some of the required healthcare and nursing services unavailable or be unable to use them. Therefore, the bill needs to embrace the needs of the members of the ethnic and cultural minority to a greater extent.

It is suggested that additional financial opportunities for the members of the identified vulnerable populations could be created when using the services of Miami PPO and EPO. Specifically, the choice of the provider should not be constrained by financial issues; instead, extra options for using the services of the required quality should be given.

While the changes mentioned above will require substantial budgeting, they are a necessary step in improving diversity issues in healthcare. Therefore, I hope that you will consider the idea described above. Its implementation is bound to contribute to a massive positive change in the quality of healthcare.

Thank you for taking your time to read this letter.
