Gathering, documentation and analysis processes will be used to come up with relevant answers to the research question. Intervention and Impact Determination For any analyst to solve a health problem that affects a population, it would be important for them to find a scientific approach. To be successful, the researcher will have to use guidelines that will ensure there is an alignment of all efforts to achieve the main objective and to come up with a long-term solution. The World Health Organization decided to come with strategies that would help to reduce the prevalence of Hepatitis B and C in the Eastern Mediterranean Region. Its main objectives were to prevent the transmission of the virus, to reduce the number of deaths caused by the same by providing care to the patients, and to reduce the social and economic effects of Hepatitis in the region. In its 2012 study that included 22 countries, it found out that more than 5 million people suffered from the disease. Most of the inmates in the Al Jabal Al Gharbi corrective center come from the 22 states which are members of the WHO. They are migrants who get to Libya through illegal means as refugees. The adverse effect of this occurrence is the increase in Hepatitis prevalence in the

EPIDEMIOLOGY APPROACH 6 country. If there lacks an effective health care program that would help eradicate the problem, there will be complications (Honor, Wright, Berwick, Clancy, Lee, Nowinski & Koh, 2011). Consequently, the government needs to establish Healthcare centers in all the prisons to ensure that the inmates are screened and treated thus protecting the whole society. This is because after inmates have served their jail terms, they go back to the community. For this intervention to be successful, the local medical establishments should work hand in hand with the corrective center. It would be great if all the inmates will agree to go through the tests and the city officials decide to do something about the same. Identification and treatment of Hepatitis patients is an uphill task since it involves a lot of financial and medical input. Medical practitioners and other individuals involved in the process need to follow strict rules. Written agreements should be made to determine the treatment timeframe. Impact As indicated earlier, there lacks sufficient data regarding the prevalence of Viral Hepatitis in the country. Consequently, this study will provide information to the government and health authorities. The community will realize that this problem is not restricted to the prisoners, but it also affects it negatively when these individuals are freed. The inmates will have a chance to access medical services while in prison if healthcare centers are established in the facilities. More so, all departments will work close to try and eradicate the disease (Sprung, Cohen & Adini, 2010).

EPIDEMIOLOGY APPROACH 7 Evaluation Planning In every country or community, healthcare sectors are charged with the responsibility of maintaining good health standards (Beam, Boulter, Freihaut, Schwedhelm & Smith, 2010).

    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.

    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.
