: The focus of this module is on the structure of healthcare delivery systems across the world and the role of political policy on healthcare and its constituents. For Final Project One, you will develop a profile of a non-U.S. country based on your assessment of the country’s population health and healthcare system. Your country profile will examine the impact of economics, culture, and social factors on population health and examine three health issues.

To begin this project, you must first identify your country and three health issues for analysis.

Choose a country to assess for your final project. Develop a profile of the country beginning with your rationale for choosing the country. Examine the contextual details of the selected country, including demographic data. Next, describe the general state of healthcare. Identify three major health-related issues plaguing the country and briefly describe them.
