.The project is intended to allow you to delve more deeply into aspects of the course material, particularly focused on a public health problem (or challenge) that is caused or exacerbated by underlying political instability,social unrest, and/ or environmental degradation. You will need to surmise the interactions based on our class discussions and readings but then confirm your public health problem with evidence from the literature (e.g.,scholarly articles and book chapters) and/or reputable media.
You could choose to use Haiti as your focus, or you could choose to do a comparative analysis with a different country or region of the world.
Once you choose your topic and setting,you could choose to develop interventions or pose approaches that might address the public health problem, or choose to analyze and evaluate or compare approaches that have been taken elsewhere with those taken in Haiti.
Summary of scope of work.For your chosen topic, you should explain how you are going to investigate and act on the problem presented.
You should address each of the following issues,plus any others that you think might be relevant to your specific case:

Devise a plan to further study and solve the problem.You do not need to actually solve the problem but propose a possible solution.
Present a detailed account of challenges and issues you will need to consider. For example, for projects that propose a program, such as an NGO that would tackle a specific issue like improving health education about malaria, include some ideas about how you will evaluate or assess the feasibility and effectiveness of your program.Project Deliverables:Project Proposal Description (Due April 15).
