Introduction: Provide a brief overview of the public health significance of the issue your plan addresses, and why it is important to intervene within the population and setting you have chosen. Briefly describe what the plan will accomplish and how it is organized. Epidemiological Assessment: Define your public health issue and describe the positive and/or negative health outcomes related to this issue. If your issue is a health outcome (e.g., Type 2 Diabetes), describe the other positive and negative health outcomes associated with it. If you are focusing on a health-related behavior (e.g. breastfeeding, vaping), describe the health outcomes associated with the behavior. Provide information regarding the distribution of your public health issue/behavior and related health outcomes by age, sex, ethnicity, location, and other variables you deem important. Use appropriate epidemiological data and statistics to provide a strong rationale for focusing on a specific population (e.g., versus other groups), geographic area, etc., or for focusing on a universal or non-specified population. If data does not exist for your exact population, geographic area, etc., use data from which you can extrapolate and explain both your rationale for using those data and the shortcomings of your extrapolation. Include at least one goal and one objective for your targeted health outcome(s). If appropriate, provide a rationale for the goal(s) and objective(s) selected. Make sure that the goals and objectives for each outcome are linked Identify indicators related to the targeted health outcome(s) that can be used in the baseline assessment and for evaluation. Identify the secondary data that you will be using and when you will access and collect it. Submission Format Your paper should be formatted and referenced according to APA 7th edition.
