Identify your topic. Provide background information and  statistics on the topic, including the global areas most affected by the  topic and the types of health care issues most often associated with  the topic.

Develop a 6–8 page, APA-formatted article on a global health topic for  publication. Describe the factors that impact health and health care  delivery, and the interventions that have been implemented. Explain the  influence of altruism on global health, and identify evidence-based  interventions to address the global health topic.

The overall wealth of a country often influences the country’s level of  accessible health care and, ultimately, the health of the country’s  citizens. However, developed countries often face similar public health  issues as developing and middle-income countries. For example, HIV and  AIDS are major public health concerns in both the United States and in  many less developed sub-Saharan African countries. Through  collaboration, research, and direct care, community/public health nurses  can provide expertise and leadership in international health issues  (Maurer & Smith, 2013). Understanding the processes involved in  caring for populations provides the foundation for collaborative  practices in international nursing care.

Preparation

Suppose you have been asked to submit an article for publication in  your organization’s newsletter, about a global health topic and how  policies and practices at the local level can affect global health.  Choose one global health topic from the list (or use another of your  choice):

  • Mental health.
  • Communicable diseases (HIV/AIDS, influenza, malaria, tuberculosis).
  • Non-communicable diseases (cancer, lung, and heart disease).
  • Maternal and child health (prenatal care, midwife education, childhood vaccinations).
  • LGBT health.
  • Disabilities.
  • Global water supply and safety (GlobalHealth.gov, n.d.).

Look in the Capella library and on the Internet for very recent  peer-reviewed articles, statistics, and professional nursing information  on the global health topic you selected.

Requirements

For this assessment, develop an APA-formatted research review  article that covers one global health topic of your choice. In this  assessment:

  • Identify your topic. Provide background information and  statistics on the topic, including the global areas most affected by the  topic and the types of health care issues most often associated with  the topic.
  • Describe the factors that impact health and health care delivery  in the global areas most affected by the topic you selected. These  factors may include not only culture and tradition, but also politics,  economics, and social attitude.
  • Explain the influence of altruistic organizations (Peace Corps,  Project Hope, religious and non-religious missions, and so on) on health  and health care practices in the global area specifically associated  with the topic.
  • Describe the interventions implemented to address the health care  issues associated with the topic. Include both conventional and  unconventional interventions.
  • Explain how the health care decisions and practices at the local  level (the area most impacted by the topic) relate to health and health  care delivery in other global areas. This is not limited only to best  practices, but could include poor health care decisions and practices.
  • Identify evidence-based interventions that are effective,  efficient, cost-effective, and equitable for promoting wellness and  disease prevention in the specific area and population.

Additional Requirements

Complete your assessment using the following specifications:

  • Title page and reference page.
  • Number of pages: 6–8 (not  including the title and reference pages).
  • At least 3 current scholarly or professional resources.
  • APA format for citations and references.
  • Times New Roman font, 12-point, double-spaced.
