PH 353 San Diego State University Week 5 Health Governance Discussion


  1. In 3-4 sentences, describe global health governance and why it is important in disease transmission.
  2. Describe 2 missteps of WHO in handling Ebola.
  3. Now, think about how COVID-19 is being handled. Has WHO learned it’s lesson from Ebola in handling COVID-19? Why or why not? (Links to an external site.)
  4. Based on what you have learned about global health governance and COVID-19, does the US response to COVID-19 (Links to an external site.) align with the principles of global health governance? So, if you were a key player in global health, such as the President or the Secretary of State, discuss two things that you would have either done differently or kept the same in handling COVID-19, and your justification for either making these changes or supporting what has been done.

Global health governance is the ways in which societies organize and collectively manage their affairs. There are many key players in effective global health governance, including state and non-state actors, like the WHO and private donors such as the Gates Foundation. Global health diplomacy (GHD) is the “process of negotiated collective action for global health that can eventually lead to new forms of global health policy and governance ” (Fidler, 2008).

Let’s now dive into the readings and videos. Assigned readings and videos for this topic are organized in preferred chronological order below and will be relevant for your discussion assignment!

  1. Please watch my lecture on global health governance and global health diplomacy.
    1. And here is a copy of the slides: Global Health Governance.pdfACTIONS
  2. Now, complete this short reading on Global health governance.pdfACTIONS
  3. Let’s watch this video on theWHOs response to Ebola (Links to an external site.)
  4. And this video onWHO reform (Links to an external site.)
  5. Finally, this short reading on lessons learned from the Ebola crisis


Objective: To explore a local public health intervention or prevention program and identify strengths and weaknesses based on the lecture material.

Instructions: Please find a local public health intervention or prevention program that is currently being implemented (or was recently implemented) in your community. I have included some websites below to help your search. Once you have found the program, please answer the following questions.

  1. Describe the program in at least 4-5 sentences. What is the goal of the program, who is the population targeted?
  2. Based on the information from the instructor lecture, identify the type of community intervention (community as a setting, community as a resource, etc) that is being implemented
  3. Do you think this program is good for your community? Why or why not? Remember, community members are essential to designing effective programs, so think about what you know about your own community and whether this intervention will be effective. What might public health professionals want to consider adding/removing?

Part 1: Read Chapter 16: ‘Think About It: The Stigmatization of HIV and Other STIs’ and answer two of the following questions:

  • How have you observed HIV/STI stigma among your friends or others in our society? How were these stigmas demonstrated?
  • If you became infected with HIV or another STI, would stigma and shame be an issue for you? If so, how would you deal with it? From what resources would you seek help and support?



The Millennium Village Project had multiple challenges, as discussed by Nina Munk in The Idealist. Based on your reading and what you have learned in this course, please respond to the following question in 1.5-2 double-spaced pages. You do not need any references besides The Idealist.:

  • Identify 2-3 specific challenges or pitfalls discussed in the book and how you would address each one. Consider how Sachs’ egotism and inability to listen to the people of the villages and experts in the field contributed to these challenges.
  • If you were to conduct a similar study today, what specifically would you do differently and why?

De Anza College Oil on Ice & Arctic National Wildlife Refuge Questions

This is an old environmental studies film that I was happy to find in our Kanopy system through De Anza College. If you find that this link does not work go into the De Anza library search for “Oil on Ice.”

Video link (60 mins) : (Links to an external site.)

In this video, various stakeholder (Links to an external site.) groups are represented. They include, but are not limited to:

  • Alaskan people
  • Fisherpeople and descendants
  • Gwich’in people
  • Politicians
  • American people

While taking notes, make sure you add any stakeholder groups that I did not list. List the arguments for or against proposed development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska. In addition, make sure to answer the following:

  1. What is special about ANWR? Why can’t the oil companies go in and drill? What is needed to allow for drilling?
  2. What is the habitat in ANWR like according to the people who live there? What organisms live there? Tell me about the habitat.
  3. Tell me about the Exon Valdez. Do some research using the internet. Have any other situations (oil spills) bigger than the Valdez occurred since?
  4. Do some research on your own to find out the current status of drilling in ANWR. What’s the latest?
  5. Tell me your thoughts about potential drilling in ANWR.

H 588 Oregon State Industrial Hygiene Sampling Methods of Respirable Particulate PPT

Homework 3: Industrial Hygiene Sampling and Analytical Methods – Presentation (10 pts)

Due: PPT prepared on May 13 submitted in Canvas before class, to be presented during zoom session on this date.

Background: To prepare for learning about industrial hygiene, you will become familiar with the different sampling and analytical techniques used in a consultative and regulatory agency. These are methods provided by OR OSHA. In the past, we have visited the OR OSHA Occupational Health lab, where you would have seen this equipment and meet with the lab manager and industrial hygienist who could explain and demonstrate the use of these techniques. Oregon is one just a few states that has such a lab so we are lucky to have the facility.

InstructionsYou will be responsible for presenting information from a method, provided by OR OSHA, that you drew from a “hat”. Use internet resources to learn more about the agent being sampled, how it is sampled and how it is analyzed. You will prepare a 5-10-minute presentation for the class covering the following items:

I got respirable particulate sampling.

SCI 201 Colorado Technical University Wk05 Urbanization Discussion

I will include the word file which has the questions and the power point which has the answers and just like always you don’t have to worry about the Discussion boards I already did them.

kindly, make sure to answer all questions correctly because I lost many points on the last two questions, THANK YOU😇 .

Citrus College Venus & Mars Atmospheric Changes Questions

1) Concept maps are a way to help you organize your knowledge of a subject. Concept maps begin with a main idea (or concept) and then branch out to show how that main idea can be broken down into specific topics.

You can organize concept maps in many different ways, as a quick Google image search will show you. Here’sLinks to an external site. an example of a concept map about Earth’s geology. Here’s a concept map about concept maps (Links to an external site.).

Look them over and then create your own concept map about the moons of jovian planets, using your assigned reading. You can draw the concept map on paper and convert it to a .pdf using Genius Scan or other software. There are also digital concept map making websites like Lucidchart.

You created a concept map for Homework Assignment 8. A special kind of concept map is called a flowchart, which lists the steps in a process with lines or arrows connecting them. There are two flowcharts to make for this assignment.

Part 1: Venus’s Changing Atmosphere (40) (and yes, Venus’s is not a typo (Links to an external site.))

Put the following events in order. Then create a flowchart that lists how they are connected. Each step of this flowchart should include one of the following items, except for the last step, which includes two. You may need to review your notes from the lectures 4 and 5. The first four steps in the process include one item each. The last step includes two items.

  • Water evaporates from the rivers, lakes, and oceans on the surface of Venus.
  • Venus gets so hot that both the day and night side are hotter than an oven set to “broil”.
  • The presence of more greenhouse gases in the atmosphere increases Venus’ greenhouse effect.
  • Venus is 30% closer to the Sun than Earth. Although this may not seem like much, it is enough to give the planet a higher temperature.
  • The loss of water inhibits the CO2 cycle from taking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.
  • The atmosphere thickens until it the atmospheric pressure would crush any human to set foot on the planet.

Part 1: Mars’s Changing Atmosphere (60)

The flowchart for Mars is more complicated. It starts with one fact that immediately contributes to three separate outcomes in the next step and goes on from there.

  • Plate tectonics slows down and eventually stops.
  • Since Mars has only 1/3 Earth’s mass, Mars radiates away its internal heat to space within about 1-2 billion years and it’s core thickens and or solidifies.
  • The solar wind breaks apart water molecules in Mars’s atmosphere. The hydrogen escapes to space and the oxygen reacts with surface rocks, causing Mars to take on a red color.
  • The interruption of the CO2 cycle causes carbon dioxide to build up in Mars’s atmosphere.
  • Volcanism slows down and eventually stops.
  • Mars’s magnetic field weakens and eventually disappears.
  • Lowered atmospheric pressure causes water to evaporate at lower temperatures.
  • Mars’s slowly dries out.

Texas a & M International Mod 1 Mixed Methods Concepts Research Methodology Discussion

Referring back to your work in Module 1 and considering concepts from this module, how would you develop your previous methodology to incorporate mixed-methods concepts? You may choose to create a sequential-explanatory design (quantitative followed by qualitative), a sequential-exploratory design (qualitative followed by quantitative), or a concurrent design (collecting both data sets simultaneously for triangulation). Discuss the benefits and drawbacks of using mixed methods in your response.

De Anza College Impact of Carbon IV Oxide Emissions Discussion

De Anza College The Story of Stuff Video Discussion Paper

This is a classic in environmental studies at this point. If you’ve taken an ES class you have likely already watched it. If you major in ES/ESCI, you will watch it many, many times. I honestly don’t know how many times I’ve seen it, but I still learn..

I would like you to document the materials system. Annie Leonard (Check it out she’s currently the executive director of Greenpeace (Links to an external site.)) explains the steps of the linear system from extraction to disposal. Write/draw them out and try to make note of the impacts on people and the environment along the way. Ultimately, she says we should aim for a closed system, a circular system. Explain internalized and externalized costs as well and human exploitation of resources.

Submit your notes. Make sure you have the system documented.
