Global Health Goals and Health DisparitiesInstructions
Baccalaureate education provides learning of globalization, diversity, and sensitivity to vulnerable populations’ healthcare (AACN, 2008).
This activity is designed for you to examine global health goals and health disparities among vulnerable groups. Start by selecting one Sustainable Developmental Goals (SDGs) from the World Health Organization (WHO). After choosing one of the SDGs, explore a specific outcome measurement (indicator) for a country of your choosing, from the list below, to determine the progress towards achieving the SDG. In addition, you will explore nursing roles that would be helpful in achieving the SDG.
South Africa or Kenya is my country of choice
Also, you will explore health disparities among vulnerable population groups. The term “health disparities” describes the phenomenon of different health outcomes of varied vulnerable groups of citizens. Access the Virtual Library and search in the CINAHL full text database the term “health disparity.” Choose at least two articles that describe health disparities of a particular vulnerable population or group of people (gender or sexuality identity-based groups, children, elderly, disabled, ethnic, or cultural minority).
