Explore the World Health Organization – Global Health Observatory: https://www.who.int/data/gho. Under “Explore a word of health data”, click on the button titled: Countries.

Section 1: This section can be put into table format.

Pick two countries to compare with the United States. For all three countries, identify the following information:

  • The life expectancy at birth
  • The healthy life expectancy at birth
  • The leading causes of death and illness for males and females
  • The population of each country
  • The completeness of birth and death registration for the countries
  • The gross domestic product per capita (can be found at the top of the page for each county)
  • The expenditure on health as % of GDP (can be found at the top of the page for each county)
  • Using the World Bank Data: https://data.worldbank.org/indicator/SP.DYN.IMRT.IN, identify the infant mortality rates of each country.

 

Section 2:

  • In the countries that you chose, do you see a correlation between economic status and the health of the population? Explain your answer and give specifics.
  • Read Coronavirus is exposing all of the weaknesses in the US health system
  • https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2020/3/16/21173766/coronavirus-covid-19-us-cases-health-care-system

The international response to the novel coronavirus has laid this bare: America was less prepared for a pandemic than countries with universal health systems”. (D. Scott, Vox). Agree? disagree? Why?

In reflecting upon this assignment and the course readings on global health, why must we as nurses in the U.S. think globally regarding health, illness, and disease? How can we as a profession use our “power” our voice —to make an impact so needed in our world?
