Every program that is created to help solve a health issue needs to be evaluated. This checks for its availability, cost, and accessibility. The Actual Plan There are four evaluation stages; formative, process, impact and outcome evaluation. Gathering information about this infection among the inmates will form a foundation for the development of other programs. Healthcare authorities around the prisons can utilize the data collected to plan how to reduce the spreading of the virus. All patients who will be identified will have to go through medical procedures to prevent further spreading. In addition, details of individuals who will be positive will be submitted to the relevant authorities for isolation purposes. The main objective will be to ensure that all victims are identified. A special team to check on the progress will also be established. Within three months it will be required to provide a full-detail report about the state of the prisons in regard to the prevalence. In addition, the team will indicate the number of individuals who would have successfully been treated. Conclusion The East Mediterranean region is among areas that have been significantly affected by communicable diseases. Testing and treating individuals from this area is an uphill task due to lack of data regarding the Hepatitis prevalence. In Libya, the condition is worsened by individuals who migrate to the country from areas that have a high incidence of the virus. The best approach to be used in the area is the epidemiological design which will provide sufficient

    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.
