Epidemiology Paper Requirements

  1. Describe the chosen communicable disease, including causes,

    reporting time, whom to report to, etc.
  2. Describe the social determinants of health and explain how those factors contribute to the development of this disease.
  3. Discuss the epidemiologic triangle as it relates to the
    communicable disease you have selected. Include the host factors, agent
    factors (presence or absence), and environmental factors. Are there any
    special considerations or notifications for the community, schools, or
    general population?

    reporting, data collection, data analysis, and follow-up) and why
    demographic data are necessary to the health of the community.
  5. Identify at least one national agency or organization that
    addresses the communicable disease chosen and describe how the
    organizations contribute to resolving or reducing the impact of disease.
  6. Discuss a global implication of the disease. How is this addressed
    in other countries or cultures? Is this disease endemic to a particular
    area? Provide an example.
