Global Strategic Resource Allocations
This assignment is designed to provide an opportunity for students to explore resource allocation for a designated global health topic (disease, illness, or issue) for a selected country.
Each student must select a global health topic that is a problem in another part of the world. The topic may be a health problem in the United States as well, but the emphasis of your discussion should be on a global health topic, and how it is a problem in a specific part of the world, excluding the United States (US).
The other aspect to keep in mind is that the emphasis of the assignment should be on human and financial resource allocation for the global health topic. In addition, you will discuss the significance of the topic for the selected country, identify US global health policies related to the selected topic that are specific to the country selected, discuss the overall progress being made, and identify what resources are needed to combat the global health issue that are currently not being allocated.
The initial post should be approximately 1000 words with liberal use of references. At least one reference must be from a professional journal. A minimum of 8 references are required. The discussion should be written in a formal style, and adhere to APA guidelines. Organized flow, logical progression of ideas, and clarity in thought processes are essential.
Once the initial discussions are posted, each student will select a different topic and cross post to another student’s work. Individual student cross posts are intended to add substantive content to the post and add to the topic by contributing new information (additional human and/or financial resource allocation) for the selected topic and country.
Individual student cross posts should be approximately 500 words and a minimum of 2 references. Students are not required to ‘claim’ a topic for cross posting. Multiple students may cross post to the same original post; however, information posted should be new content and duplication must be avoided.
In the Forum, name the post by the name of the global health topic and country discussed.
All assignments are individual student assignments “ there will be no group work; however, for this assignment, students will be separated into 2 groups, Groups A and B. Students can refer to the ˜roster’ under ˜site management’ (from course home) for group assignments. Students are only separated into groups to reduce the number of students posting in a discussion area.
