So interesting! I learned a bit about this in my "Health in a multicultural context" course. One of the topics we explored was the USA health system (I'm Canadian) and how it causes unnecessary haram. For example, if someone accidentally scrapes their foot on a rusty nail in their floor, instead of getting it checked out at a walk in clinic, maybe getting some antibiotics, and that being the end. Due to high insurance rates and insane med prices people choose to just put a band aid over small injuries and allow the cut to fester possibly resulting in extreme infection amputation (extreme case). This is all due to lack of access of course but also their SES. If they had jobs that had insurance or could afford insurance themselves this wouldn't be a problem.
