Consider the public health issue you selected for your course project using the framework of Chapter 9 in Global Public Health (motor vehicle accidents). As you think about your issue from a global perspective, what aspects of it have the most influence beyond your community and have implications for the global community. Think in terms of things like lifestyle, population dynamics, disease, climate change, disaster response, etc.
- With a focus on the entire planet, why does your topic matter?
- If you were to select a global public health issue to focus on, rather than a community public health issue, which one would you be most interested in and why?
- What do you think is the most pressing global public health issues we will be facing 50 years from today and why?
