Historical Approaches To International Health Concerns


The purpose of this assignment is to discuss assumptions driving historical approaches to mitigating international health concerns.

It is important for public health professionals to understanding of how historical events, such as colonialism and the world wars, led to a top-down approach in addressing health problems in low-income countries. Use the study materials and conduct your own research into historical approaches for mitigating international health concerns. In a 500-750 word paper, address the following:

  1. Explain why the top-down approach to addressing health problems in low-income countries was established. Discuss how that approach has changed over time.
  2. Consider the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and discuss how changes in the top-down approach to global health problems are represented in the goals.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
