Unfortunately for some time now, British Columbia has been trapped in a cycle of poverty that they have been unable to escape. British Columbia is one of the most impoverished places in the world and unfortunately has an extremely high mortality rating for this reason. It seems like this area of the world has been forgotten about until recently, as people on social media have been trying to draw attention to the devastating conditions that people who live in British Columbia have had to deal with for so long. 

Now that more attention has been brought to the horrific conditions, other countries are doing what they can to work with British Columbia in order to try and improve their state of living. Here is how British Columbia is battling health poverty.  

 

Increased employment  

One of the main reasons that people are struggling to get the health care that they need is due to a lack of funds. This is because British Columbia has one of the highest unemployment ratings in the whole world, with many people surviving day to day on what they are able to hunt or grow by themselves.  However, people cannot make their own medications to treat their health problems, so employment is necessary for them to be able to afford the medicine that they need.  

Though they cannot afford to give everyone money in order for them to be able to live, something that they can do is create more business opportunities for the local people. Weed has been legal in Canada for some time now and BC is going to use this fact in order to help with the unemployment issues.  

The plan is to expand on the marijuana companies that are already up and running in BC, as this will give people more of an opportunity to find work. The plan is to open several more marijuana-growing plants within BC so that people with a variety of skills can seek employment.  During the cold months, people who work in gardening spend a lot of time looking for other jobs that do not match their skills or pay as much as a laboring job. By opening up more plants, BC is giving hard-working gardeners the chance to not only utilize their skills but expand them at the same time.  

So next time you are making your way through the 10 strongest indica strains in BC, remember that you are supporting an industry that is well needed during the current health strains BC is experiencing.  

Outsourced support 

One of the biggest issues that British Columbia is facing is a lack of resources. Thanks to the current pandemic, the medical sector is under a lot of strain. Basic sanitary items that are necessary for medical treatment are being used quicker than they can be restocked. On top of this, the hospitals simply don’t have enough room to house all of the people in need of urgent medical care. For this reason, the hospitals are outsourcing the support they need and a lot of the local businesses are more than happy to help. There has been an influx in PPE donations, along with sanitizers and other essential items. Spaces have also been provided free of charge so that doctors and hospitals are able to review the health of their patients without even having to take them into the hospital. These temporary clinics have already taken a lot of the concern that the medical sector had away.  

 

Though there are steps being made in the right direction, there is still an astounding amount of health poverty being experienced in BC, so it is important that we all do what we can to offer support.
