Assignment: Global Healthcare Comparison Matrix and Narrative Statement

Note: This Assignment is due on Day 5 of Week 11.

If you talk about a possible poor health outcome, do you believe that

outcome will occur? Do you believe eye contact and personal contact

should be avoided?

You would have a difficult time practicing as a nurse if you believed

these to be true. But they are very real beliefs in some cultures.

Differences in cultural beliefs, subcultures, religion, ethnic

customs, dietary customs, language, and a host of other factors

contribute to the complex environment that surrounds global healthcare

issues. Failure to understand and account for these differences can

create a gulf between practitioners and the public they serve.

In this Assignment, you will examine a global health issue and

consider the approach to this issue by the United States and by one

other country.

To Prepare:

Review the World Health Organization’s (WHO) global health agenda and

select one global health issue to focus on for this Assignment.

Select at least one additional country to compare to the U.S. for this

Assignment.

Reflect on how the global health issue you selected is approached in

the U.S. and in the additional country you selected.

Review and download the Global Health Comparison Matrix provided in

the Resources.
