Economics and Financing of Public Health Systems

For the Scholar-Practitioner, you take an in-depth look at the long-term economic and financial outlook of a public health initiative. You should have a reliable contact within the organization that will allow you to have enough information and access to complete the project.

The project will consist of four parts:

· Part 1A: Public Health Initiative Approval

· Part 1B: Economic analysis

· Part 2: Financial accounting analysis

· Part 3: Alternative funding sources

You must demonstrate that your public health initiative is viable, capable of being sustained on a long-term basis, and provides a positive public health impact in the community. Your public health initiative must also increase the health status of an underserved population to be deemed successful.

Describe the public health initiative you selected P to be the focus of your Scholar-Practitioner Project. Include a brief overview of the initiative and your rationale for selecting the initiative.
