Evaluating a Global Health Issue

Assessment Description

 

“The Global Burden of Disease Study” is conducted by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation and published in The Lancet journal. It captures and analyzes data on many major causes of mortality and morbidity from almost every country. The study allows researchers and practices to compare countries and also help individual countries prioritize major health issues and risk factors with available resources. Review the background of the study by exploring the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation website as well as the various Global Burden of Disease (GBD) reports found in The Lancet journal. Create a PowerPoint presentation (five to seven slides, not including your title or references slide) that addresses one of the top five causes of mortality and morbidity from the Global Burden of Disease Study (GBD). Select the health issue based on a specific country of interest and include the following in your presentation:

 

Evidence and statistics supporting it as a major health issue, such as the Disability Adjusted Life Years or other measures of mortality and morbidity. Indicate which country you selected.

 

Four major risk factors related to the health issue.

 

Potential gaps or limitations in the data.

 

Three social or economic opportunities to control or reduce the prevalence of this issue (reference the connection to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals).

 

Points of interest regarding this leading cause of mortality and morbidity related to the country you selected.

 

For the presentation, use Loom to create a video. Refer to the topic Resources for additional guidance on recording your presentation with Loom. To submit your video, you can either upload the video directly, embed your video into a Word document, or put the link to your video in a Word document and submit the document.

 

Refer to the resource, “Creating Effective PowerPoint Presentations,” located in the Student Success Center, for additional guidance on completing this assignment in the appropriate style.

Benchmark – Integrating Health Care and Public Health Systems

 

Assessment Description

 

When considering public health and health care systems and the services they provide, it is important to think about how these systems and services are integrated. Systems thinking tools are helpful to consider the various links, feedback loops, and decision points within a system to identify opportunities for improvement and increase efficiency.

 

For this assignment, select a low- or middle-income country of interest and assess its health system. In a 1,000-1,250-word paper, address the following:

 

Apply a systems thinking tool, such as a causal diagram or process map, to identify opportunities for how gaps in public health services can be bridged through a strong health system.

 

Describe the major components of the health system.

 

Discuss core services the health system provides and who manages them (government, private sector, a mix of both, etc.).

 

Discuss who is responsible for paying for those services or who funds the provided services.

 

Conclude by explaining how the selected systems thinking tool can be applied to better address an infectious disease in the selected country.

 

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

Benchmark – Participatory Learning and Action Tools

 

Assessment Description

 

Participatory learning and action (PLA) tools are used to engage communities in a process of shared decision-making around their strengths and assets. Action steps are often identified by the group to make social, economic, or environmental changes in their community. Select and practice one of the following participatory learning and action tools:

 

Community asset map

 

Holistic worldview analysis

 

Appreciative inquiry interview

 

Problem tree analysis (also called diagramming)

 

Photovoice

 

Guides on how to facilitate the tools are described in the community engagement and PLA resources in the topic Resources. Identify an individual or group of individuals with whom you are currently working as part of your job, service, volunteerism, or family. Review the selected tool and become familiar with the process and purpose of the tool prior to facilitating it with your selected individual or group.

 

In a 1,000-1,250-word essay, discuss the following:

 

What tool did you select and why did you select it instead of the other options?

 

What cultural insight did you learn based on the individual or group you selected? Include a brief description of the individual or group you engaged for this

 

assignment.

 

What challenges did you identify in facilitating the tool?

 

Discuss how the participants responded to the tool regarding their participation and shared decision-making. Consider how PLA tools are focused on building the

 

capacity of people versus projects or programs.

 

A Health in All Policies approach, which include economic and environmental factors, is important in addressing the interconnectedness of health factors to support holistic transformation. Discuss how this community engagement approach through such a tool is useful for assessing a Health in All Policies approach. In addition, consider how this approach is effective in reducing health disparities by addressing economic and environmental issues through community mobilization and assets. Review the website and introductory report on “Health in All Policies,” by the American Public Health Association (APHA), and “What You Need to Know About Health in All Policies,” by the World Health Organization (WHO), located in the topic Resources for additional insight.

Benchmark – Faith-Based Organization Case Study

 

Assessment Description

 

A faith-based organization (FBO) is an organization that has a faith or religious component as its foundation and motivation for its work. The purpose of this assignment is to assess a faith-based organization and understand how it is unique. Faith-based organizations play an important role in global health given their holistic approach to serving the whole person and community, especially among vulnerable groups. Identify an example of a faith-based global health organization or ministry. Research the institution by reviewing annual reports, websites, papers, program documents, or conducting in-person or phone interviews. The organization should be at least five years old, work in multiple countries, and have an explicit faith-based foundation. Write a 1,000-1,250-word case study on the selected organization in which you assess the following aspects of the organization:

 

Mission

 

Assess how the mission of the organization aligns with its strategies and work:

 

How does the mission of the organization match its strategies and activities in

 

serving vulnerable or low-income populations?

 

How does the organization integrate faith into its public health activities and

 

programs? Comment on how the organization balances its mission to share its

 

faith with its goal to improve health.

 

Are the values of the organization unique compared to other global health organizations?

 

Populations

 

Assess the populations served by the organization or ministry:

 

How does the organization or ministry identify a population or individuals to

 

serve?

 

Does the organization have specific eligibility criteria?

 

Funding Mechanism

 

Review a funding report for the organization. Assess the funding mechanism of the organization:

 

What are the primary sources of support for the organization?

 

Do the local populations being served by the organization help support the

 

organization (time, talents, or treasure)?

 

Partnerships

 

Assess the partnerships of the organization within public health to develop innovative and appropriate public health models:

 

List the organizations that the selected faith-based organization partners with.

 

How does the organization work or partner with other organizations, churches, or groups in the communities where the organization works? Is this effective in promoting health and environmental stewardship and reducing poverty?

 

Does the organization partner with governmental public health agencies?

 

How could the organization improve the effectiveness of its “aid” and support in the communities within which it works?
