These 3 pieces of background information should be related to social, political, and economic determinants of health and how they contribute to population health and health inequities in your given country.
Some examples may include access to health services, population distribution by age, human rights and/or political issues, economic issues such as poverty, urban or rural distribution of population, social, religious, or cultural norms as it pertains to your topic. The connection to your topic should be made obvious.
This section should not deal directly with your health problem. Rather, it should help the reader understand your country from an outsider’s perspective, yet be relevant to public health, in general.

First, define the health problem
Second, include risk factors (causes) and consequences (effects) for the health problem, specific to your country.

Who is the target population? All citizens of country does not represent a specific target population.
What is the health problem? Choose just one problem to address in your one
How much change (represented by a percent) do you anticipate? Tip: A 10% change within 10 years is a realistic goal.
By when will the change occur? This should be represented by a specific end date, not a range.
Realism. If you are unsure about a goal’s realism, I recommend you review goal statements from Healthy People 2020: http://www.healthypeople.gov/2020/topicsobjectives2020/ (Links to an external site.)) (Links to an external site.)
Example goal statement for the problem of Hearing loss among German elderly adults, leading to social isolation:

Notice the goal statement includes the 4 required components: who, what, how much, and by when. It is also realistic.

Describe the impact of globalization on population health, broadly, not just specific to your chosen country.
