Overview

Letters to the editor can be a platform for experts in their fields to share perspectives on debated issues of the day. As a healthcare professional, you are uniquely positioned to compare the United States to other health systems around the globe. Despite the high expenditures in the United States, outcomes are still poor compared to other nations. Why is there a mismatch between healthcare spending and outcomes in the United States? How does the United States compare to other developed and developing countries?

Prompt

You have been invited to provide a letter to the editor of a scholarly health journal. The editor has requested that you identify the financial impacts of health and non-health policies in developed and developing countries. Specifically, how do these policies impact cost expenditures in the United States? Be sure to include specific points evaluating healthcare infrastructure, political barriers, and social inequities impacting health outcomes in developed and developing societies.

Overview

Stakeholder support is critical for the success of short-term volunteer aid trips. Working responsibly and effectively with host staff is particularly important, but there are other potential stakeholders to consider. These stakeholders might be from other not-for-profits, NGOs, philanthropists, academic institutions, government agencies, lobbyists, or other interested groups. Investigating potential stakeholder support is a critical step in developing humanitarian aid interventions. It allows you to answer the questions: Who will implement the intervention strategies? How will you leverage and strengthen existing community resources? Who will ensure accountability and measure success?

Prompt

In your reading, you reviewed an example stakeholder identification table for a sexually transmitted diseases program evaluation. For this assignment, you will craft a short paper to identify similar lists of potential stakeholders that could support your humanitarian aid trip. Your stakeholder lists can overlap, but you should have at least eight stakeholders or stakeholder groups identified in total.
