Global Health Priorities

In this assignment, you are asked to identify five (5) issues that you consider to be priorities in global health. These priorities can be any health or health-related conditions (such as disease, mortality rates, risk factors, etc.). For each priority, define what it is and then provide a description making sure to provide the ‘who, what, when, and where’ information. Make sure to detail the “time, place, and people” aspects as well as what metrics are used to estimate its impact. Next, provide a statement as to why this topic is a priority in global health.

For each priority, you must use at least one unique source to support your response.

Please make sure that if you directly cite any information from a source that you cite the material appropriately. Any direct quotes need to be identified with quotation marks (“”) and the source identified in the text (e.g. WHO 2017:23). Points will be deducted for any plagiarized material and lack of citations. Provide all your sources in a bibliography section formatted in APA style. If you need assistance with citation formatting please visit https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/
