This assignment is a continuation of the first part of the Health Policy Brief you developed in week 2. In the second paper, you will identify and compare at least two health campaigns that provide potential solutions and advocacy efforts about your health care issue. In addition, you will examine and explain if your plan could be enacted via a modification of existing law or regulation or potentially the development of a new legislation. Lastly, discuss the methods you would use to influence legislators to support your plan, including how you would address opposition to your plan.
Please use the following guidelines and criteria for this assignment. Also, please refer to the rubric for point allocation and assignment expectations. The expected length of the paper is approximately 5-6 pages, which does not include the cover page and reference page(s).
I. Introduction (including purpose statement)
II. Identify and compare at least two health campaigns that addresses solutions, interventions, and advocacy efforts about your health campaign. If you are unable to identify a second health campaign, you may reference a proposed bill and discuss implications. Also, you may discuss the demographics that are positively or negatively impacted, the costs of different options, funding mechanisms, etc.
III. Examine and explain if the plan you drafted in paper I could be enacted via a modification of existing law or regulation OR potentially the development of a new legislation. If you are proposing to modify existing laws or regulations, make sure to include in-text citations as well as referencing the source. If you are proposing the development of new legislation, what should be included in the bill? Be specific and cogent.
IV. Discuss the methods you would use to influence legislators to support your plan. Also, discuss how you would address the opposition. For instance, one of the disadvantages of your plan is that it may be too expensive to implement. That said, you may acknowledge that but also you may explain why it is worth the investment. If so, make sure to list your reasons.
