Creating Common Ground
In this article, the author talks about the importance of policy in health equity and the role we all play in improving population health.
Read “Can There Be Political Common Ground for Improving Population Health?” from this week’s University Library Readings.
-The Politics of Health
This week’s assignment requires you to consider the perspectives of differing viewpoints. This activity is designed to give you time to find and research a law or policy in preparation for it and receive feedback from your faculty member about the topic.
Identify or choose one health care law or policy at the local, state, or national level in preparation for this week’s assignment, Funding Proposals.
Consider the following examples:
-Legislation around HIV/AIDS
-Legislation around health promotion and prevention (for example, obesity)
-Legislation around over-the-counter Narcan™ (naloxone) or needle exchange
Research the law or policy to determine:
-The main purpose of this law or policy
-The main population affected by this law or policy
-How this law or policy affects a population it is intended to serve
Write a short summary and submit it to your faculty member for feedback and approval.
