Step 1: The three “Principles of Action” outlined in the 

final report to the Commission on Social Determinants of Health

are essential to achieving health equity. These actions contain a host of SDH such as access to decent employment, and gender equity. Read the “Executive Summary” (pages 1-23) (provided above) paying special attention to the different social determinants of health the Commission addresses. 

Step 2: Find one recent news article (published within the past month), in a newspaper or on a news website, that features a health issue in your particular country or community. Alternatively, you can find one new story of interest on CDC Global Health Newsroom
 (Choose one story from the list of news stories).

Step 3: Write an 300-350 word essay that includes the following information and answers to the following questions:

1. Briefly summarize the main features of the health issue you selected, and how it is affecting the country or community where it exists.

2. What are the main 

risk factors
 for this health issue?

3. Outline three social determinants of health that could influence those who are most at risk for this health issue. Describe how these social determinants are linked and relevant to this health issue. (Note: it may help to go through the determinants described by the Commission and try to visualize how each may be linked to the health issue you selected. For example, how might income, employment, gender, structural racism, global warming, physical environments, access to health services, etc. influence those who are at risk?)

4. Briefly describe 3 actions you recommend that could improve health equity related to this health issue. (These recommendations can be community actions, government actions, or international actions but they must address all three of the social determinants you described in question 3).


After reviewing the Case Study 'John's Journey' 

(provided in Week 1 Folder)
 Describe 2 things that the Case Study helped you to understand about the link between community and client health and the impact of the SDOH. Specifically link your observations to John and his family demonstrating understanding and review of the Case Study provided. 

Please be sure to adhere to the following when posting your weekly discussions:

1. Students are to write their name and the appropriate discussion number/discussion title in the title bar for each discussion. For example 
Discussion 1: Micheal Cabrera or Discussion 3: Sheila 

Smith. This is important in identifying that students are submitting original posts as well as response posts as required.

2. Students are to submit their discussions 
directly onto Blackboard Discussion Board.

Attachments submitted as discussion board posts will not be graded.

3.  As a reminder, 
all discussion posts must be minimum 350-550 words, references 
must be cited in 
APA format 7th Edition, and 
must include minimum of 3 scholarly resources published within the past

years (not part of the classroom coursework).  

DISCUSSION POSTS WILL BE DUE NO LATER THAN SUNDAY, Since there was a delay to Week 1&2, this post has been extended to Week 3 and is due by Sunday, 9/17/23 by 11:59 pm EST

Since there is only two students who is registered for this section of the course there will not be any peer responses therefore discussions/Cases will only have the original response and my feedback and the rationale for the length as normally the original discussions are 250 words and 2 peer responses are 150 (300 words). I have therefore increased the length of this original post for this reason.
