Assignment: Vulnerabilities of key Populations

HNN217 – Community Nursing Practice – Deakin University

According to the World Health Organisation, “… the vulnerabilities of key populations result in their being disproportionately affected by HIV in all countries and settings. These disproportionate risks reflect…specific legal and social issues that increase their vulnerability. Yet HIV services for key populations remain largely inadequate” (WHO, 2016,pxv)

Assignment question:

Discuss how community nurses can use the primary health care principles of equity and access to protect and promote health for key populations and communities affected by HIV.

1. Include a summary of the principles of equity and access within primary health care

2. Include a description of the key populations, their disproportionate risks, and their equity and access issues (see reference below: WHO, 2016)

3. Include Case Scenario 3 HIV, available on Cloud Deakin for HNN 217, in your discussion as an example of community nursing interventions and approaches to support preventative healthcare services and promote health for key populations affected by HIV.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
