In this assessment, you will test your knowledge globally by assessing an emerging global health issue. You will address factors that exacerbate the issue and develop a plan for improvement. You will also develop a wellness teaching program. 

Part 1: Doctors Without Borders Presentation
Imagine you are a nurse working with Doctors Without Borders to address an emerging global health issue in a specific region of the world. You are preparing to travel to the region to improve an issue or illness. Your director has requested that you prepare a presentation about the issue or illness for your fellow staff.

Choose a specific emerging health issue within a specific country (i.e., sex trafficking occurring in the US states bordering Mexico).

Create an 18- to 20-slide presentation, with detailed speaker notes, analyzing emerging global health issues related to the country or region of the world of your choice.

Include a summary of the chosen country and emerging health issues that impact the populations.

Summarize your chosen emerging health issue and explain how and why this issue impacts populations within your chosen country.

Analyze the cause of the issue or illness in your presentation.


  • Individual issues (e.g., personal hygiene)
  • Community (e.g., resources, demographics)
  • Family roles and structures (e.g., single-family households)
  • Culture (e.g., values, beliefs)
  • Environmental issues (e.g., access to technology and health care, geographic concerns)
  • Examine the factors that continue to exacerbate the issue or illness.


  • Individual
  • Community
  • Cultural

    Format your assignment as follows:

Your speaker notes convey the details you would give if you were presenting. See the Create Speaker Notes section of the PowerPoint 2013 Training video for more help.

For each group selected, answer the following questions:

1. What is your main concern for your health? (Do not commit to teaching any topic yet.)

2. How do you best like to learn (demonstration, participation, handouts with pictures, articles)?
