Remember that Karl Marx wrote Das Kapital in 1867, and much of Marxist theory was developed in the early to mid 1800, at the tail end of the Industrial Revolution. Working conditions were significantly worse then than they are today.

Marx was very critical of capitalism, which he called the "dictatorship of the bourgeoisie", run by the wealthy middle and upper classes purely for their own benefit. Disease and illness was a result of this pursuit of profit. But so was healthcare, as capitalists had to maintain their workforce to make a profit.

Marx talked about socialism, which led directly to the foundation of the National Health Service in 1948, just over 80 years after he published Das Kapital.

You should also take a good look at health statistics from the 1860's until today.
