Step 1 Research a health promotion program or initiative that you can operating in another country, or by an international organization, such as the World Health Organization. Find a similar initiative operating somewhere in the United States.
Step 2 Answer the following prompts:
In your opinion, what topic has seen the most important progress in health worldwide over the last 50 years?
Is the information presented in both initiatives the same or are there differences (beyond language). If differences are seen, what are they? Would you expect the initiative to be more or less effective if the format and information was similar or different?
Many people around the word believe that illness is caused by factors other than disease as defined by the biomedical model. How could a health promotion initiative be adapted to address this belief?
