Assignment 4: Develop a Global Health Intervention

Overview: The ‘Addressing Global Health Challenges’ organization is running a competition to fund interventions that meaningfully engage with and address at least one of the 10 threats to global health in a specific context. The ‘Addressing Global Health Challenges’ organization will fund any scale or scope of the project as long as the proposed project aligns with the organization’s mandate (i.e., addresses at least one contemporary global health threat). According to their guidelines, each intervention will need to demonstrate how it is ‘locally’ driven and governed (i.e., not driven or governed by external stakeholders/organizations), sustainable (i.e., high likelihood of continuing beyond the funding cycle of four years), and prioritizes addressing health inequities (i.e., meaningfully engage with and include populations/groups/ communities with experiences of marginalization).

You will choose a specific global health threat (based on the 2019 WHO’s 10 greatest threats list) and develop a solution that addresses this threat within a specific geographical regional or country context (e.g., HIV in Lesotho, climate change in Kiribati, non-communicable diseases in urban Bangladesh, dengue in the southern Philippines, etc.).

First, please research and provide an overview of this global health challenge and propose a global health intervention to address this threat. Next, develop and propose an intervention to address this global health challenge that is locally-driven, sustainable, and prioritizes health inequities. In researching your assignment, do read the WHO’s statement on the 10 Global Health issues to track in 2021.

    • Please include relevant details about the country or region of interest, including political and economic realities that may affect the development and administration of the proposed intervention
    • Please include relevant indicators of the burden of this threat, such as measures of morbidity, mortality, economic cost, etc. as relevant
  • A succinct but detailed description of the global health intervention that answers the following questions:
    • Who are the proposed project partners?
    • How will you ensure the project is grounded in local priorities, is culturally safe, and incorporates ideas of decolonization in global health?
    • How will you ensure the project is sustainable?
    • What does the intervention look like? What are the major activities and sub-activities? How will it benefit or address the selected global health threat?
    • What are the expected outcomes?
    • What are the strengths of the approach?
    • What are the potential limitations and challenges of the approach?
