    You are a nurse employed by the World Health Organization (WHO). You have been assigned the task of conducting an analysis on the current social, cultural, epidemiological, and environmental influences on a selected population of one disease of your choice found on the WHO website.

    After you have selected a population and chosen a disease from the WHO health topics that impacts that population, you will review past, present, and future social, cultural, epidemiological, and environmental influences on that population due to the disease. Then develop a plan drawing from inferences about the selected population and present your idea to the International Council of Nursing.

    • Identification of the selected population
    • Social, cultural, epidemiological, and environmental factors
    • Past, present, and future considerations
    2. Analyze how the chosen disease currently impacts various groups within the affected population.
