For this semester-long assignment you will choose one specific topic area of interest from Healthy People 2020. You will research and analyze the literature concerning this topic. Based on your research you will create a unique program that addresses the healthcare issue that you have identified on your own or in Healthy People 2020, write a research paper documenting the need for your program, create a professional poster to present your program to your academic peers, and lastly, create a brochure to advertise your program to the identified population you wish to serve.

The information written in this annotated bibliography will serve as part of the research to help you write the next part of your project: The research paper. You will need a minimum of 7 peer-reviewed journal articles for the research paper so keep that in mind when reviewing the literature and create a folder of possible articles in addition to the ones you choose for your annotated bibliography.

Malaria is traditionally one of the most debilitating diseases in the sub-Saharan Africa region. It is primarily caused by Plasmodium falciparum, a protozoan carried largely by mosquitoes (Meyrowitsch et al, 2011). Recently, sub-Saharan countries have developed sounder strategies to combat the disease due to an increase in planning and vigilance. O’Meara et al (2010) report that lasting declines in malaria incidence have occurred in South Africa, Swaziland and Mozambique. Since malaria is a difficult disease to control in tropical areas, public health officials must develop flexible, multi-phase plans to attack its spread, including fighting the disease at its source by eliminating the mosquitoes that act as the vector for P. falciparum. Meyrowitsch et al (2011) note that the “improved quality of health systems, including improved case management, such as enhanced diagnostics and implementation of highly effective anti-malarial drugs” are causes for decreased malaria rates in high incidence countries such as Rwanda, Burundi, and Kenya.

Controlling Malarial Vectors
Several species of mosquito, including Anopheles gambiae and Anopheles funestus are responsible for carrying P. falciparum in their bloodstreams. Mosquitoes are extremely effective vectors for bloodborne diseases....
