This lesson is the third in a series of four lesson plans which serves as a guide to help students translate a public health needs assessment into a public health (intervention) plan. Students will use the Needs Assessment that they completed for Lesson #2 to inform a public health plan that addresses the needs of the identified priority population.
A public health plan is created in response to a needs assessment and defines the planned intervention to improve the health of the priority population. The public health plan also provides a detailed description of each activity to be conducted in the implementation of the public health plan.
This lesson is intended to assist students in the development of a public health program to address the health disparity that they researched in the creation of their Needs Assessment from Lesson #2. A sample Needs Assessment plan is included in the resources section in the event that a teacher would like to forego lesson #2.
