1. Examine the UN Millennium Developmental Goals (2015) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Global Programs & Initiatives. Select a UN Millennium Goal and a HHS Global initiative which could be utilized as a basis of reference for addressing the palliative care issues and obstacles in nations. Then based on that goal and initiative compare, contrast and describe the cultural end-of-life care policies & services of China, India, or sub-Saharan Africa with that of Europe.
2. Analyze and hypothesize why the United States spends more money per capita on health care and does not have the greatest return for the money as compared to other developed countries such as Japan.
3. How can WHO’s health policies make a difference in global health care? Be specific and provide advocacy suggestions.
4. For the module 8 assignment you will find it helpful to research under-developed countries’ access to health care and the morbidity and mortality rates of the population. Examine the UN Millennium Developmental Goals (2015) and the latest progress made toward their attainment. Why is important to note their progress worldwide? Then, contact organizations already involved in efforts to improve the health of the nation to understand what is already is being done and what are the gaps or ongoing needs. Highlight your interviews, research and findings for the country you will focus on in the coming weeks.
Please submit one APA formatted presentation (PowerPoint®, Prezi®, Impress® etc.) of at least 5 slides for each of four topics, listed above. This presentation should be a minimum of 20 slides including a title, introduction, conclusion and reference slide, with detailed speaker notes or recorded audio comments for all content slides. The assignment should have a minimum of four scholarly sources, in addition to the textbook. As you research the content for the coming 6 weeks, consider the WHO World Health Report (2013), and your selected developing country and imagine who would be ideal team members with the intention of creating an action plan for addressing the country’s leading cause of death. Consider the population and major health concerns, in depth, and review what are the country’s health disparities and determinants? The final project is due in module 8 and will give you the opportunity to create a detailed action plan and present how best to implement the project, successfully.
