  • High coverage under immunization policies

Rhode island health challenges

  • High percentage of children living in poverty

  • High rate of binge drinking among adults

  • High rate of preventable hospitalizations

Since the rate of preventable hospitalizations in the state is extremely high, a series of steps have been taken to bring down this rate. One of the initiatives is a ban on smoking in public places to bring down the cases of hospitalization caused by heart attacks.

The Rhode Island Department of Health issued a press release in February 2012 which reveals how the number of hospitalizations caused by AMI (Acute Myocardial Infarction), commonly called heart attacks, have fallen sharply ever since the ban on smoking in public places was introduced in 2005.

A study reveals that in spite of the above measures, the rate of hospitalization due to asthma (particularly, among children) has not declined significantly. It also reveals that the incidence of asthma is higher among children living in poverty and poor housing conditions.
