Learning Outcomes demonstrated by successful completion of the task below
a) Examine environmental
factors from the local to the
global levels that influence health and interpret the relevance to the health
b) Interpret and analyse the
impacts of globalisation on the
social, economic, and political determinants of global and local health.
c) Critically analyse ethical
elements relevant to environmental health protections, policies, and industry practices, including
identification of vulnerable groups.
d) Investigate the
relationships between environmental
risk factors and social, economic, and political determinants of illness and injury.
apply frameworks and interventions to mitigate environmental health issues

One of the most
important strategies to understand the impact of global and local environmental
health issues is to conduct a critical analysis of the factors that lead to the
problem. The DPSEEA (Driving forces, pressures, state, exposures, effects, actions)
framework was developed on behalf of the World Health Organization (WHO), to
establish and analyse the cause-to-effect chain of environmental issues. The
DPSEEA frameworks enables the analysis of each factor that impact the health of
a given population (WHO, 1999).
The DPSEEA was designed to support
actions to reduce the burden of disease linked to the environmental health
issue and to improve communication between key stakeholders.
Completing this assessment, the
student will develop knowledge and understanding of the importance of
establishing the structural drivers of environmental health issues, and the
causal relationship between them. Critical analysis of these factors allows for
a clear understanding of the nature of the health crisis, and the potential
gaps in policy, procedure and legislation that trigger it.
Write a report
using the Driving forces, Pressures, States, Exposures, Effects and Actions
(DPSEEA) framework to analyse the impact of an environmental health issue in a
specific region. Describe the links between cause and effect and develop
actions to targetthe chosen issue. Please follow the task instructions below.
You will be
given an option to choose a SPECIFIC geographical
region in the world (such as a suburb, city, state, region,country) facing
the impact of an environmental health issues CAUSED by one environmental health issue provided by your learning
facilitator in the template.

Write a report
using the template of the environmental health issue impacting your chosen
region addressing the following key points:
o Explain the
links and describe the Driving forces,
Pressures, State changes, Exposures, Effects, and current Actions relevant
to the impact of the environmental health issue in the chosen region.
o Identify and
describe any vulnerable populations that are disproportionately affected by the problem.
Research and discuss the gaps in management and
legislation in different sectors (Government and non-government) that triggered
the environmental health issue in the chosenregion (based on your framework investigation).
What is the role of existing health agencies and
other agencies, key stakeholders including community groups, critical
infrastructure addressing the environmental health issue?
Based on your findings, review and analyse the
literature related to the environmental health issue and propose 3-4
evidence-based recommendations addressing the gaps in current policy,
regulation, and management in your chosen region.
a literature reflection as explained in the template.
