Must watch a video (first 30 min). Video can be found on YouTube “And thou Shalt Honor”
Many laws, policies, and initiatives in public health are developed to try to create more equity in access to healthcare or to decrease the disparities that some people experience. It is difficult to determine when one population has received sufficient attention and another population should replace them at the forefront of advocacy and/or attention. Did you know that today we have more parents to care for than children? Eldercare has replaced childcare as a leading healthcare issue.
For this assignment, do the following:
- Watch the first 30-minutes of the video And Thou Shalt Honor.
- Develop a policy related to the public health of the elderly in the United States.
- Compare the strategies used in the United States to address our increasing elderly population with that of another Country of your choosing. Critique some of the public health policies that have been developed in that country and how are they are working.
You assignment should be a 2-3 page assessment (not including the cover or reference page) that utilizes proper APA format and includes at least 3 scholarly resources.
