Public Health care of Benin : A national and international stakes for public and multisector policies of control concerning public and individual health hazards.
There is an increasing call for a responsible and more committed public action regarding the tackling of public health hazards in Benin. The purpose of this inquiry therefore comes within the framework of a sociological understanding of institutions in charge of public health at the population level by assessing their potential impact on the provision of health care and the standard of living of individuals.
The current juncture of cross-border communication of health-related hazards calls for preventive and corrective measures to be taken both at the national and international level. Although the ability to control health hazards varies from one country to another, the handling of a localized case of a public health incident of any kind is bound to affect the rest of the world, hence the need to understand how the state of Benin devise and implement its strategies to tackle a public health hazard before and during its outbreak.
In this regard, precautionary principle seems to be more or less the main drive behind the formulation and implementation of certain public policies concerning the control of public health hazards. Policies of hazards and the social expression of the need for health care, which are at the core of this study stem from the research for the attainment of modernization goals and the efficient running of public and sanitary institutions of this country.
