WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO

2. Write a case study on your chosen population group. Start researching the health issues

You will demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the key health issues for your chosen group in this region

Describe some recent research findings relevant to the group,

Look at current public health and health promotion action in the region targeting this group.

3. Look for recent up to date data

5 years old (from the last 5 years, ie. from 2014 onward) to explore the current situation in the region

Consider – Your chosen risk group – Health issues of concern within this group (that you have identified) from the data

For example: housing, access to health care, prevention of violence, human trafficking, sexually transmitted illnesses, malaria etc.

Here is a great starting point: http://ghdx.healthdata.org/

4. Identify one (1) health issue to discuss in detail:

TIP: It’s easiest to choose the one issue that is most significant for this group ie. the one that contributes the most to the burden of disease or has the most impact on this community currently.

5. Discuss the findings from at least three (3) recent pieces of credible literature on this community

These sources should be relevant to the key health issue you have chosen for this population group – you will be led by the research here

You may choose to use peer-reviewed journals, conference presentations, government or non-government organisation reports; these sources must be published from 2014 onward

You may choose to use websites as well, however these will be in addition to the above minimum of 3;

5. Find a policy or strategic document to help reduce that health issue, for that population group in that geographic area

Present the key points: From one (1) policy or (1) other strategic document explaining how this informs action on health issues of concern for your chosen group at the local level

eg. Minimum working age for children policy, Gender equality (increase number of women in decision making positions), Youth policy (unemployment)

6. Identify at least two (2) organisations working that address the health issue in that geographical area

Working in this space, briefly explaining their roles promoting health in this context;

You need to ensure you specifically relate this back to YOUR population group in your area that focuses on the health issue

For example: an organisation that is working with young women in the Philippines with an unplanned pregnancy

7. Using your evidence write 3 recommendations! These are NOT your opinion, they must be evidence based!

Based upon the evidence you have found, for future public health/health promotion action in this space.

You need to ensure you specifically relate this back to YOUR population group in your area that focuses on the health issue
