The Case of Hurricane Katrina

The diversity movement suggests that our differences should not have economic, social, or political consequences and that we should be entitled to the same access to resources and opportunities regardless of our differences. However, the human suffering resulting from Hurricane Katrina and the images of victims have stimulated a debate about differential access to resources.

 

Using the Internet, research about the differential treatment and access to resources. Based on your research, create a 3- to 4-page report in a Microsoft Word document that includes answers to the following questions:

 

  • What are the potential ethical issues that researchers may face when conducting public health research targeting vulnerable populations?
  • What are the specific vulnerable groups that are potentially at risk as a result of the disaster? Why?
  • What are the specific strategies that you would propose to ensure equity? Explain.
  • What are the strategies that you would recommend to prevent potential human rights violations? Explain.

Support your responses with examples. INTEXT- CITATION MUST MATCH REFERENCES

Cite any sources in APA format.
