Question Description

I’m trying to learn for my Health & Medical class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

This assignment has two parts.

Part 1: Write a descriptive epidemiological analysis of the following diseases: Lyme disease or Malaria. Describe the basic epidemiological patterns of this health condition by person, place, and time.

Part 2: You are a Health Officer for a rural county health department and have been assigned to study the frequency of an infectious disease such as tuberculosis or HIV/AIDS. Write an essay in which you do the following:

  1. Describe observational and experimental epidemiology as the two (2) study designs apply to either of the diseases you have chosen. Be sure to identify differences between these two types of analytic epidemiology.
  2. Under what conditions will you conduct a case-control study as opposed to a cohort study?

Be sure to support your opinion with evidence from the literature. Please research from the module materials and any credible, scholarly and professional source including the University’s online library in providing your response.

Length: 3-4 pages, excluding title page and references.

Introduction to Epidemiology
Part 1: Epidemiological Analysis of Malaria
It is common for people living in malaria prevalent areas to experience it more than
once in a season. In Africa, children experience malaria attacks after every 4 to 6 weeks in
many years. In the same region, an average adult experiences Plasmodium falciparum attacks
1 to 5 times annually. Similarly, people in Southeast Asia experience recurrent malaria
infections 65 days after treatment. Such a situation poses danger to the patient as it makes
treatment difficult for them (Nkumama, O’Meara & Osier, 2017). The ailing individuals
could also become fatally ill. Consistent malarial infections result in a decrease in blood
lymphocytes and an unbalanced immune response. Not only do the attacks cause biological
consequences, but they also affect the socio-behavioral features of an individual. For
instance, children with recurrent malaria attacks perform poorly in school more so in
Mathematics and languages, compared to children with little or no malaria infection cases
(Ghinai, Cook, Hla, Htet, Hall, Lubis & Latt, 2017).
Tropical and subtropical regions like Asia, Africa, South, and Central America are
popular spots for the occurrence of malaria. The major difference in these areas is their rate
of transmission and risk of infection. For instance, Sub Saharan Africa experiences 90% of
malaria infections and deaths compared to 40% of the arid and highland areas (Ghinai et al.,
201...
