“In this post, after having read the assigned materials, I want you to think about them in the context of Sustainable Development Goal #3: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/sdg3. (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. Read both the “”Progress and Info (2018)”” and “”Targets and Indicators”” tabs to give yourself a better idea of what the goal entails. Discuss some of the themes that you noticed in the assigned readings that are reflected in the SDG. This will set up your post, by introducing the topic of health, for the next part.
Then, taking the diseases you were given in your group activity this week(My disease topic is Tuberculosis), look for a recent article where that disease is the subject. Good places to find such articles are https://medicalxpress.com/, (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. reports from the World Health Organization (WHO), or even a search of the name of the disease on https://news.google.com (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Similarly, you are encouraged to find a scholarly article using https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. or https://scholar.google.com (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. I want you to provide a synopsis or summary of the article, as well as identify from the page on SDG #3 the connections between the goal and the article. An easy way to summarize an article is to state the Five W’s. Draw from both the section on “”Infectious diseases and non-communicable diseases”” and the specific targets and indicators – e.g. 3.3.1. More than one target or indicator may be related. For instance, think of ways as we did in in the exercise of how the disease affects other aspects of the society. From there many of the targets and indicators can be broadly applied.
