Disease of Global Concern

Characteristics of a person or people, geographical location, and era help to better understand the development and pervasiveness of a disease. Descriptions of persons, places, and time help to effectively describe disease and health status within a population.

Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research about a disease of global concern (HIV, AIDS, or any such disorder). Based on your research, answer the following questions:

  • How would you use demographic data to characterize this disease?
  • How would you incorporate further research to address this disease?
  • How would you use morbidity and mortality in developing prevention strategies aimed at increasing attention to disease and decreasing adverse health outcomes?
  • Which phenomenon—morbidity or mortality—is better to study to develop preventive strategies? Why?
