Detail of assessment task:

This assignment relates to achievement of competencies in designing, planning and evaluating a new health promotion initiative that will attempt to reduce inequity. Specifically it includes a rationale, needs analysis including analysing a health problem, where you will note equity issues, setting intervention goal and objectives and planning strategies and evaluation.
Apply the Ottawa Charter and address determinants of health. ONLY population-level apporaches to intervention (including social marketing) may be used.
* Educational approaches MUST NOT BE USED, which are as you know the least effective health interventions.
Nor may students report on a previous or current proposal you are expected to come up with your own ideas, for a small local area project. Think about a health concern in your local area not a state wide project.
The report should include the rationale, needs analysis, project goal and objectives, details of strategies to be implemented and by whom, and expected outcomes. A format for the final report will be provided.
