Liminating Polio in Latin America and the Caribbean

Case study paper

Eliminating Polio in Latin America and the Caribbean

Here is some information about the case studies. You are to select one of the case studies in the Levine text book beginning on page 157 and answer the questions listed. You must pick a case study that has at least 5 questions listed. You are to gather information from websites and both your textbooks to answer the questions. You may only use websites that end in .edu, .org, or .gov. No commercial websites (ending in .com) may be used.

Begin your paper with an overview or summary of the specific health issue discussed in the case study. Write this out in narrative form. The grading criteria use the word outline but that doesn t mean you can use bullet or outline format. I expect a written narrative summary. Discuss the particular health issue, how it develops, its impact on individuals, common treatments modalities, and its impact on the country s health and economy.

Next, list the questions individually and address them. Use the questions as headers. Answer the questions using narrative writing. Answer the questions separately. List the question, answer it and then list the next question, etc. I would estimate that you should write approximately one page overview and approximately a half page to answer each question. The total case study paper should not exceed five (5) pages, excluding cover page and reference page.

Use proper APA formatting for this paper. You are expected to provide citations and references. I am a stickler for APA so you have been warned that is you do not make an effort to follow it, you will suffer significant deduction of your points for the presentation of the paper.



The following is what is listed in your syllabus.
