The government of a Nation oversees the affairs of its citizens and are seen to be responsible for many factors accounting for growth and development. It is a question for debate whether the people in power should focus more on medical care or divert their attention to other parastatal
In the following paragraphs, I will go further to explore the topic from both perspectives and justify why I think giving priority to health is Paramount.

To begin with, a common adage says “health is wealth”. According to the Oxford advanced learner’s dictionary, health is defined as a state of complete physical, social and mental wellbeing and not just the absence of disease or infirmity.
Investing in people’s health invariably increases the population of work force available thereby boosting the economy of a Nation.
Also, having a stable health Nationwide tend to attract more foreign investors as they are assured of getting a satisfactory result from their investment.

On the other hand, giving priorities to other areas such as Education, Transportation and Agriculture is beneficial as it tends to hasten National development.
For instance, countries like Australia are termed developed because it’s citizens get access to good roads, quality education and are well equipped in the practice of mechanized farming.
Likewise, the standard of living of the populace is improved when more attention is directed towards these sectors.

In conclusion, giving priority to health care and other sectors are equally important.
However, from where I stand medical care should take more preference for the above reasons stated.

That is a nice essay. But the question in the actual exam is slightly different. I am aware of it because this was the question in my IELTS exam and it went like this:

It is more important to spend money on the promotion of healthy lifestyle than spending it on treatment for already ill patients.

To what extent do you agree or disagree?
