How do economics affect global health?
Consider, for example, trends in poverty and hunger between developed countries such as the United States versus those countries that are developing such as Ethiopia or Cambodia. How might economics or access to resources to address poverty and hunger differ between these countries? What health trends may be most associated with poverty and hunger between these countries?
Within the global context, initiatives and programs have been developed to address the global issues of economics as they relate to poverty, hunger and health. From providing nourishment to less developed countries to initiating grass-roots movements to advocate for marginalized population groups in these countries, approaching the problem of economics as it concerns poverty and hunger will vary.
Submit a 3-4 pages of an explanation of the relationship between economics and global health issues, such as poverty, hunger, or water and food shortages. Be specific and provide examples. Then, identify an international initiative that is working toward addressing these global health issues. Explain the mission of the international initiative, including an example of an effective program that has been implemented.
