2. Bài mẫu IELTS Writing Task 2 topic Health

Some people say that the best way to improve public health is by increasing the number of sports facilities. Others, however, say that this would have little effect on public health and that other measures are required. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

It is suggested that building more sports centers or health clubs will be the most effective method to improve public health. However, in my view, health education is a more optimal measure.

On the one hand, people's health is greatly improved by participating in sports facilities. There is no denying that fitness levels are increased when participating in physical activities such as exercising daily or playing sports. Therefore, the increasing popularity of gym classes or sports clubs gives people more opportunities to improve their health. After a tiring day at work, many residents in my neighborhood join evening yoga classes to stay fit and keep their health.

On the other hand, I would argue that increasing the provision of sports facilities will have little impact on public health. Because of the fact that many people who have paid for an annual gym membership cannot fully join after just one month. Therefore, I think it is more important to educate people on basic health awareness. A person will easily avoid some potential health problems if he is fully equipped with basic knowledge of medicine and health care. For example, as a child learns more about the side effects of smoking, they may be less likely to develop this bad habit as an adult. Therefore, community campaigns and health protection programs need to be promoted so that people know how to protect their health effectively.

In conclusion, the increasing popularity of sports facilities has brought many health benefits to people. However, I personally believe that raising public awareness through health campaigns will have a more positive impact on improving people's health.
