Global Events

Report Issue

Write a 5–6 page, APA-formatted report that explains the responses to a  global event, how issues of race, class, and gender may have affected  the response, and the role of international and altruistic organizations  in providing health care services related to the event. Describe  barriers to receiving health care services related to the event, and  explain the role of the professional nurse in providing health care  services related to the global event.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), natural disasters  kill approximately 90,000 people and impact another 160 million people  every year (2015). Natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis,  hurricanes, and wildfires not only have an immediate impact on those who  live in and around the affected area, they also often have a  longer-term effect on the health and well-being of those impacted.  Developing countries are frequently unable to respond to natural  disasters effectively and efficiently because they lack resources,  infrastructure, and disaster-preparedness systems.

Poor health care systems in developing countries also make these  countries more vulnerable to epidemics such as the recent outbreak of  Ebola in Chad, Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. According to a report  from Save the Children (2015), some developing countries have less than  one health care worker for every 2,000 people. Other diseases such as  malaria and pneumonia account for as many as 17,000 child deaths every  day (Save the Children, 2015).

Nurses can provide critical skills during times of global events.  Whether by volunteering directly at the site of the event or by  recruiting, screening, and training other professional nurses behind the  scenes, nurses are crucial to global relief efforts.

Suppose that within your health care organization there is no  formal process or structure for health care professionals to volunteer  time and services in times of global need. You would like to develop a  proposal for establishing a process that would allow nurses and other  health care professionals to secure time off to work with a specific  worldwide organization, to provide health care services during global  events. As part of the proposal, you would need to provide background  research to support your request.

Conduct background research on either one of the following to support the proposal you would develop:

  • Choose one worldwide epidemic, such as the 2009 flu pandemic,  2009 mumps outbreak, 2012 Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus  outbreak, the recent Ebola virus epidemic, or another epidemic. Research  articles that focus on how the initial outbreak was handled; the role  of social attitudes and issues of race, class, and gender in responding  to the outbreak; barriers to people receiving proper health care; and  the role of nursing in providing health care services related to the  epidemic.
  • Choose one natural disaster, such as the earthquakes in Haiti,  Pakistan, or Nepal; Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar; the Indian Ocean  earthquake and tsunami, or any other natural disaster that brought a  worldwide response. Research articles that focus on the initial response  to the disaster; the role of social attitudes and issues of race,  class, and gender in responding to the disaster; barriers to survivors  receiving health care; and the role of nursing in providing health care  services related to the disaster.


For this assessment, develop background research that would support  a proposal for an organizational process allowing health care  professionals to volunteer time and services when global events happen.  First, identify the global event you will be using in your research, and  then:

  • Explain how the local and national (meaning the nation in which  the event took place) communities responded to the event. Who responded?  How long did the first response take? How did health care providers  respond?
  • Explain how social attitudes, as well as issues of race, class,  gender, or other factors may have influenced the response to the event.  Be sure you consider not only the response of the home country, but the  global response as well.
  • Describe barriers to health care services for the people impacted  by the event. Some barriers may be obvious, and other barriers less  obvious; try to consider multiple aspects.
  • Explain the role of international health organizations and  altruistic organizations in providing health care services related to  the global event.
  • Explain the role of the professional nurse in providing health  care services related to the global event. Consider scope of practice  when working professionally out of one’s area of license—either  nationally or globally.
