When I read the two oaths, it made me think of the HIV and AIDS epidemics. Especially how the modern oath talked about preventing disease and how both of them talk about doing everything in their power to heal the sick. Unfortunately the HIV and AIDS epidemics affect a huge portion of the world’s population and people could do so much more to help. It bothers me that all doctors take this oath then many of them sit in their nice houses with more than enough money while people are dying all over the place. I feel they should be using their knowledge, talent, and disposable income to help more people. They should be working to make medication available to everyone who needs it instead of only those who can afford it. They should be working to educate everyone on how to prevent disease from spreading instead of only dealing with it when it comes to them. I feel like most people would rather ignore such huge problems rather than face reality and have to deal with it.
