Overview

Healthcare professionals play a critical part in global health by analyzing health issues across the planet. As a healthcare professional, you may find an opportunity to improve specific health concerns across the globe. As the world becomes more connected, your responsibility to affect change becomes more relevant and essential. These opportunities may range from medical help to humanitarian assistance. In the course project, you will propose a humanitarian aid trip addressing a particular health challenge for a targeted population.

In this initial assignment, you will select the scenario for your humanitarian aid trip, including the population. Next, you will identify the social determinants of health for the scenario you have chosen. According to the World Health Organization website, “The social determinants of health (SDH) are the nonmedical factors that influence health outcomes. They are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age.” Identifying these determinants are critical for the success of your project.

Prompt

To start the process of your proposal to the SNHU Humanitarian Aid Foundation, you will need to establish that you understand the details related to the location including the population and the social determinants of health in that location. To complete this assignment, you must first select a scenario from the Project Guidelines and Rubric document for your proposed humanitarian aid trip. Craft a short paper providing a rationale for your selection and a detailed analysis of the scenario, the surrounding health concerns, and the social determinants impacting the scenario.

Note that you should cite at least three scholarly sources from your investigation. The evidence should not be older than five years. To access the Shapiro Library Guide: Nursing—Graduate, go to the Start Here section of the course.

Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:

  1. Scenario: Use the
    Project Guidelines and Rubric document to select one scenario for the proposed humanitarian aid trip. Briefly state the scenario selected and provide your personal rationale for the selection of this scenario.

    • Briefly state the scenario.
    • Provide your personal rationale for selection of, and interest in, this scenario. (This can be your personal response and motivation for this selection. What made you select this option and what benefit do you believe you can bring to this challenge? This is the only section where first person, “I,” is acceptable.)
    • In two to three paragraphs, provide an evidence-based summary description of the problem.
  2. Population: Describe the target population for the chosen scenario. The writing should be objective and should not include the first person.
    • Clearly identify the country and the geographic region where it is located.
    • Describe the socioeconomic profile of the chosen country.
    • Describe the demographic profile of the country.
  3. Prevalent Health Concerns: Discuss the prevalent health concerns including the problem of focus in the scenario as well as other prevalent health concerns.
  4. Social Determinants: Identify the social determinants of health for the scenario.
    1. Education: Identify the characteristics of the educational system including ease of access and quality of education for the population in the chosen country.
    2. Healthcare: Explain the ease of access and quality of healthcare reported in the country.
    3. Economic Stability: Describe the factors that influence the economic stability or instability of the country.
    4. Inequity: Interpret the inequities reported among the population in the country.

Competencies

In this project, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following competencies:

  • Analyze the determinants of health in populations facing global health challenges
  • Evaluate how systems and policies impact global health challenges
  • Recommend socioculturally and politically relevant interventions and advocacy strategies to reduce the burden of global health challenges

Scenario

In an increasingly interconnected age, it is now more possible—and pressing—than ever to engage with global health issues. Healthcare professionals play critical roles in making the world a healthier and more equitable place. In this project, you have the opportunity to share your own perspectives on global health and diversity by researching and proposing a humanitarian aid trip.

Imagine that you volunteer for an interdisciplinary health team whose mission is to improve global health outcomes. The SNHU Humanitarian Aid Foundation has offered your team a grant of $100,000 for a humanitarian aid trip pending their approval.

Your task is to propose a humanitarian aid trip (approximately 2 weeks in length) addressing a particular health challenge for a targeted population.

First, select an option from the list below that you are most interested in researching. If you choose options 2, 3, or 4, you should focus your research on a specific country within the region mentioned:

  • Option 1 is traveling to Zambia to address the health challenge of malaria within that country. Your attention was drawn to this health issue after reading the scholarly article,
    Modeling Malaria Reduction.
  • Option 2 is traveling to West Africa to address the health challenge of Ebola. Your attention was drawn to this health issue after reading this
    Ebola outbreak report from the World Health Organization.
  • Option 3 is traveling to a location in East Asia or the Pacific to address the health challenge of malnutrition among women, infants, children, and adolescents. Your attention was drawn to this health issue after reading the scholarly paper,
    Trip Trouble.
  • Option 4 is traveling to a location in South America to establish an immunization clinic to provide local residents with COVID-19 vaccination. Your attention was drawn to this health issue after reading the scholarly paper,
    Public Health Matters, on the subject.

Based on your selection, you will investigate current, scholarly evidence to learn about the population and health issue. You must analyze their determinants of health, evaluate the broader social and political context, and recommend specific interventions for improving the population’s health outcomes. Ultimately, you will present your findings and recommendations in a research paper designed to persuade your sponsor to award you grant funding for your proposed trip.

Directions

Note that all the claims in your research paper should be evidence-based. Your citations should be from your independent research (not from the scenario or textbook) of credible sources and be current within the last five years. You are required to cite a minimum of ten sources overall. Refer to the Shapiro Library Guide: Nursing—Graduate located in the Start Here section of the course for additional support.

To complete your research paper, be sure to include the following elements:

  1. Introduction: Begin by introducing your audience to the selected location and health challenge. Specifically, address the following:
    1. Overview: Provide a brief, evidence-based overview, including a description of the chosen country, its socioeconomic and demographic profile, and the prevalent health concerns within the population.
    2. Purpose and Value: Clearly state the goal of this trip, including a general identification of the intervention that will be proposed. Defend the proposed value of this venture by discussing the extent to which this humanitarian aid trip will promote health equity, human rights, and social justice.
  2. Analysis: In this next section of your research paper, analyze the specific determinants of health that drive the population’s health outcomes. Specifically, address the following:
    1. Resource Availability: Evaluate the impact of resource availability (including water, sanitation, food, and air) as a determinant of health for the population. Provide specific evidence to support your claims.
    2. Access to Care and Quality of Health Services: Analyze the impacts of access to care and quality of health services on morbidity and mortality for the population. Provide specific evidence to support your claims.
    3. Cultural Context: Describe how the specific cultural context influences their perceptions of health and disease. How do these perceptions impact health issues and outcomes for the population? Provide specific evidence to support your claims.
    4. Other Determinants: Identify any other environmental, biological, or social determinants of health relevant for the population. Provide specific evidence to support your claims.
  3. Evaluation: Building on your analysis, shift your focus to the larger systems and policy landscape. What are the organizational mechanisms that can be leveraged to address the determinants identified in your analysis section? Specifically, address the following:
    1. Policies: Assess the impact of relevant health and non-health policies on healthcare access, equity, and social justice. How are the existing policies contributing to negative health outcomes or disparities for the target population? Provide specific evidence to support your claims.
    2. Systems: Evaluate the impacts of the healthcare infrastructure and systems on healthcare access, equity, and social justice. How are the existing systems contributing to negative health outcomes or disparities for the target population? Provide specific evidence to support your claims.
  4. Recommendations: Synthesize your analysis and evaluation to develop specific, feasible interventions that could be delivered in a humanitarian aid trip. At this stage, you should focus on your strategy and methods rather than your budget, but know that your funding source is limited. The budget details will be worked out at a later stage upon approval of the concept. Be sure to address the following:
    1. Intervention: Explain the nature and requirements of your intervention. What, specifically, do you propose to do and how would you implement your intervention within the context of a humanitarian aid trip? You do not need a line-item budget for the $100,000 grant, but you should include considerations of overall cost. Be sure to address the following aspects:
      1. How does your intervention address the environmental, biological, and sociocultural aspects discussed in your analysis section? Draw specific connections between your research and your proposed intervention.
      2. How does your intervention address the political and systemic aspects discussed in your evaluation section? Draw specific connections between your research and your proposed intervention.
    2. Social Justice: Defend your recommendation in terms of the extent to which your plan applies social justice and human rights principles. Provide specific evidence to support your claims.
    3. Strengthen Communities and Reduce Health Disparities: Defend your recommendation in terms of the extent to which your plan will strengthen communities and reduce health disparities for marginalized and vulnerable populations. Provide specific evidence to support your claims.
    4. Effectiveness and Sustainability: Defend your recommendation in terms of the evidence that supports the effectiveness and sustainability of your plan for the target population. Provide specific evidence to support your claims.
