Public health officials and communities are responsible for investigating infectious disease cases, as well as making sure they control the spread of the disease within the community. Their ultimate goal is to reduce and prevent future occurrences.
For the Unit V Case Study, respond to the following.
- Describe an infectious disease in your community and how it is transmitted.
- Discuss two public health programs or interventions in your community that were created to reduce the spread of the infectious disease identified.
- Explain if these programs have been successful in the community. What would you change or add to improve the intervention programs?
Your case study must be a minimum of two pages in length, excluding the title and reference pages. To support your ideas, use a minimum of three outside sources; one may be the textbook. Additionally, use a source that focuses on your community, such as a newspaper or journal article.
Remember that all written assignments must be formatted using APA style, including in-text citations and references.
