This assignment is designed for you to examine global health goals and health disparities using the Millennium Development Goal.
Global Health Goals and Health Disparities – Millennium Development Goal
Firstly, select one Millennium Developmental Goal (MDG). Explore a specific outcome measurement (indicator) for a country of your choice to determine the progress towards achieving the MDG. In addition, you will explore nursing roles that would be helpful in achieving the MDG. We use the term “health disparities” to describe the phenomenon of different health outcomes. This will be for varied groups within a particular community. Ensure you search full text database for the term “health disparity.”
Secondly, choose at least two articles that describe health disparities of a particular population or group of people (gender, ethnic, or cultural minority). This assignment requires a minimum of two current, relevant, and peer-reviewed, references. Furthermore, ensure the assignment has an introduction with an introductory paragraph. This paragraph to explain the importance of the World Health Organization and the Millennium Developmental Goals (MDGs). Then, end with a clearly worded purpose statement.
- Global Health Goals
Thirdly, select one MDG and include a description of that goal.Then, discuss how the MDG is important to global health.
- Country and Goal Progress
Fourthly, select any country (from module four list). Explain the country’s current status. Then, use the status in relation to the outcome measurement being used to represent progress of the chosen MDG. Additionally, describe how the country is on track to meet this MDG or not. Include data and details.
Nursing roles and strategies
- Nursing Roles
Firstly, select any two nursing roles. Then, explain how each role can help the country achieve the chosen MDG.
- Health Disparity and Findings
Secondly, explain the term health disparity and discuss how health disparities can impact vulnerable or undeserved populations. Choose one population or particular group (ethnic or cultural, undeserved, vulnerable group). Then, describe a health disparity occurring among this group. Includes evidence, facts, and details.
- Nursing Strategies
Lastly, ensure you discuss how nursing can help to eliminate this disparity or health inequality. Discuss two nursing strategies for improving the health disparity or health inequality (such as access to care, health education, health promotion and prevention, earlier screenings).
