Assignment – Signature Assignment

You will have to write a paper focusing on health disparities and interventions in a population outside of the United States. Choose any of the issues or diseases (or make your own up!) from the list below that are considered global public health problems.

· TB

· Malaria

· HIV/AIDS

· Access to water

· Water quality

· Air pollution

· Ebola

· Sanitation

· Cholera

· Climate change

· Healthcare

In your introduction, briefly describe your issue or topic. Also, provide epidemiological information on the following: morbidity and mortality among the specific group, community, or country. Next section will be your methods, in which you describe keywords and how you conducted your literature review. Then, in your discussion section, discuss at least three interventions published in the scholarly literature to address the crisis in a country of your choice. Evaluate the progress and outcomes of such prevention programs. Describe the intervention (e.g. target audience, experimental/control group, intervention methods and materials, intervention outcomes) Assess the methods used in the intervention (e.g. level of the intervention, strengths and weaknesses of the intervention, potential impact/generalizability of the intervention). Conclusion offers a good wrap-up of everything discussed wherein!

E.g. Access to water in Kenya. Approximately 11% of the world’s population does not have access to safe or affordable drinking water; unfortunately, 46% of the population continues to have inadequate access to quality water in Kenya. Some interventions addressing this issue include: water kiosks, household water pumps, rock catchments, and boreholes. One program was implemented in Nairobi, Kenya …. It was successful because… Another program was implemented in Kitui, Kenya… It was unsuccessful because…

A ~5+ page single-spaced paper will incorporate global health issues and solutions through interventions to these issues. Choose any of the issues or diseases (or make your own up!) from the list below that are considered global public health problems. In the introduction, provide epidemiological information on the following: morbidity and mortality among the specific group, community, or country (not the USA). Discuss at least three interventions published in the scholarly literature to address the crisis in a country of your choice. Evaluate the progress and outcomes of such prevention programs. Describe the intervention (e.g. target audience, experimental/control group, intervention methods and materials, intervention outcomes) and assess the methods used in the intervention (e.g. level of the intervention, strengths and weaknesses of the intervention, potential impact/generalizability of the intervention).

Intervention example description:

The first intervention that I will discuss addressing Ebola outbreaks was conducted by Doctors without Borders in 1995 (Kerstein & Matthys, 1999). The intervention took place in Kikwit, Congo, which has approximately 200,000 inhabitants and two hospitals (Kikwit General Hospital and Kikwit II Hospital). The intervention actually occurred within the hospital setting, in an isolation ward. It was compared to a separate hospital in order to determine the intervention significance. The intervention included building an isolation ward specifically for Ebola patients with the use of trained CDC physicians to educate the local staff on and Ebola, cleaning, body burial, disinfection and antiseptic techniques,  adequate water supply, a waste-disposal system, and usage of proper PPE (Kerstein & Matthys, 1999). Overall, the intervention was successful, though there were various strengths and weaknesses associated with it. The strengths were that it was a novel approach focusing on Ebola outbreaks and quarantine situations and ultimately, it controlled the outbreak. The weakness included the cost or expensiveness and reliance on donors, the need of trained physicians and staff to assist in education, and the potential difficulty in the scale-up. However, the intervention impact was significant. It could be generalized and transferable to all populations in different settings affected by Ebola outbreaks. This study was conducted in 1999 and is currently being employed in the Ebola outbreak of 2014, throughout West Africa (Kerstein & Matthys, 1999).
