Advocating for Lasting Change

Hello everyone, welcome to this presentation on Advocating for Lasting Change, where I will discuss the significant health issues faced by the Jordan community, deteriorating their health badly. The health issues comprised mental health irregularities among school-going youngsters, lack of health insurance, and ill management of chronic health conditions. In this presentation, I highlight the pressing need for a healthcare change proposal based on substantial data that can address these health concerns. This change proposal will improve mental health among children and young adolescents, enhance health insurance coverage, and manage chronic diseases for low-income people by utilizing governmental policy on free treatment for people with pre-existing conditions like chronic health diseases.

Target Role Groups or Stakeholders

This presentation targets specific stakeholders and role groups that can contribute towards this cause of improving the Jordan community’s health outcomes:

  • Policymakers: Your contributions in advocating this change proposal plan can support us in achieving our goal through developing and implementing fruitful health policies.
  • Governmental Organizations and Non-Profit Organizations: Your expanded health policy programs, resources, and services can effectively ameliorate the community’s health and help us accomplish our objectives.
  • Healthcare professionals: Your constant efforts to improve patients’ health will be highly demanding in providing mental health support and managing chronic diseases and relevant health problems.
  • Community Leaders and Advocates for Change: Your unwavering support and advocacy for improved health within the community is crucial in driving the change proposal program and turning it into reality through consistent efforts.
  • School Institutions: Your collaboration and support in promoting mental well-being among students will be highly valued to foster an institution where youngsters are mentally safeguarded from evil thoughts that can take a toll on their health. Through unions for similar causes, we can cultivate a community where priority is population’s health. Therefore, the contributions of each role group are essential to implement our change proposal plan effectively.

Brief Overview of Environmental Analysis of Jordan Community Through Windshield Survey

Through a windshield and environmental analysis, we analyzed the environmental condition of the Jordan community, which enhanced our understanding of its positive features and the lacking areas where further improvements are required.

Positive Features of Jordan Community:

The small town has basic amenities where children and young adolescents can go to school, community dwellers can shop around, go to recreational places, and acquire healthcare services from hospitals. The community members were resilient and eager to tackle health issues collaboratively as they showed an amicable bond with the neighborhood. All members were willing to stand for a change that ensured a sound and healthy community.

Areas for Improvements:

The Jordan community lacked in certain areas that jeopardized their overall health and impacted their quality of life. The prevailing mental health issues among school students caused havoc as a student committed suicide. Moreover, the scarcity of maximum coverage of health insurance among community members and financial issues in procuring medication for managing chronic conditions were significant health challenges. These areas required intricate attention, which our change proposal is keenly addressing and has the potential to improve these lacking areas.

Social Determinants Impacting Community Health

Several social determinants of health impact community health, the major factors being education and economic instability. While several school institutions were established for the community’s growing kids and youth, the educational systems lacked health literacy, which impacted students’ mental health. Moreover, the economic instability in most of the population hindered them from acquiring essential health services as they could not get full health insurance coverage and needed to rely on self-financing for treatments. Additionally, the financial constraints burdened populations with chronic diseases who could not manage them as they could not purchase prescribed medications. These social determinants of health are adequately touched upon through our change proposal through appropriate resource allocation and support from local health advocates.

Change Proposal Framework

Our change proposal was built on the following framework that could improve the lacking areas of the Jordan community where health was profoundly impacted.

  • Conducting interaction-based mental health programs in schools to provide mental health support to affected students and manage their thinking patterns.
  • Creating health insurance improvement plans where expanded access to Medicaid and Medicare services is advocated by community leaders and health advocates.
  • Empowering the population to acquire health insurance coverage by enrolling into ACA’s policy for treatment care in patients with pre-existing and chronic health conditions. The goals and objectives include reduced suicide attempts among children and young adolescents, an increased population with complete health insurance coverage, and an enhanced number of community members with adequate knowledge of ACA policy for chronic diseases to improve their health outcomes.
