Human Anatomy: Q4 Benchmark- PSA Sanitation Public Heath Issue

For my Q4 benchmark, I had to create a PSA about public health issues we believed was a big problem. I and my group members decided to focus on the public issue sanitation. Sanitation is the actions related to keeping clean drinking water and disposal of human sewage (waste). Public health is known as ‘’ the health of the population as a whole, especially as monitored, regulated, and promoted by the state.’’ Unfortunately, some countries in the world have poor public health that has to do with sanitation problems. Each member of the group has specific roles and jobs to fulfill in order to make this project successful. I was in charge of research and script making for the project. The project was successful in a way because of the information we had out in the video.

The most meaningful part of creating the PSA was that I was able to spread awareness on a serious issue people have to go through in the world. Not everyone in the world has access to clean drinking water and proper toilets. This has an impact on society because of the public health concern that comes from sanitation problems. Not having proper restrooms and soap can lead to the spread of bacteria, viruses, and parasites found in human excreta which can contaminate the soil, food, and water. Human has basic rights to clean drinking water and sanitation.
