SALMONELLA IN THE CARIBBEAN EPIDEMIOLOGICAL RESEARCH STUDY REPORT 2 4 to 6 pages minimum : In this section of your report, you will summarize key elements of the research study and analyze the population impacted by the health issue A. Summarize the people, places, and times represented in the research study to provide context for your report. [IHP-330-02] Population Our case study reports, Stehr-Green, (2016) “As early as the mid-1980s, Salmonella became a pathogen of public health concern in the Caribbean” (Stehr-Green, 2016, para. 1). In addition through its data reporting the outbreak started in 1988 and ended in 1997. (Stehr-Green, 2016) Over time, the breakout rapidly grew as public health officials did not respond fast enough to determine there was an actual outbreak. During this time, both the local population and tourist population were at risk of contracting Salmonella . According to our case study Stehr- Green (2016), “Outbreaks occurred in Trinidad and Tobago were still reporting confirmed cases in 1995 – 1997” (Stehr-Green, 2016, para. 25). As each year went by, “approximately 86 cases reported each year. (Stehr-Green, 2016, para. 25) With the large population of the Caribbean, the Salmonella infection affected the population of both islands. (Stehr-Green, 2016, para. 25) The largest affected area according to our case study Stehr-Green, (2016) “the most populous counties of St. George and Victoria” (Stehr-Green, 2016, para. 25). Unfortunately, there were deaths involved with this outbreak, as indicated in our case study, an average of 4 people a year died from the Salmonella infection. (Stehr-Green, 2016, para. 25) B. Describe three social and behavioral determinants strongly associated with the public health issue in the research study. Be sure to cite specific examples from the research study to support your description. [IHP-330-01] Social and Behavioral Determinants

SALMONELLA IN THE CARIBBEAN EPIDEMIOLOGICAL RESEARCH STUDY REPORT 3 Social determinants consist of conditions in which a person is born, grow, live, work and age. (Rural Health Alliance, n.d.) The need of the Caribbean population and tourists was to have the assurance they were safe in their environment which would include the ability to consume uncontaminated foods, public safety, and local health services. As previously stated, six egg-producing farms were found as unsanitary. With the investigative findings, the Caribbean population and tourists needs were not met as the egg-farms failed to properly maintain their farms and carelessly distributed their egg products to the community. Thus these conditions hampered the social need of having the ability to eat foods that were not contaminated.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
