Planning and Execution

Improving health in your community

You are working for a local health authority in a country of your choice. You have been asked to develop a proposal for a project which would be delivered in your local area. The project should seek to improve life choices made by people within the community within which that organisation works. The aim is to improve the overall quality of adult health and reduce the cost of managing preventable long-term illnesses such as heart disease, stroke and certain cancers which are related to lifestyles. The project should seek to increase awareness of risks which could lead to long-term illness. Your have been asked to prepare a project proposal for review by a committee which will decide whether to fund the project. The project should last for about one year and you will be the project manager.

Scenarios such as this never contain full information. You may therefore make any reasonable assumptions about this scenario that are appropriate for answering the assignment questions.
