Choose a health policy that interests you. Consider why that health policy is being discussed. What is the issue or the problem that your selected policy addresses? Why is your health-chosen policy important? Why are we talking about it now? Who is impacted by your policy chosen and who cares?
When defining your problem, be specific to your audience and clearly frame the issue. Who has the influence to make a change that will address this problem? If the audience is expected to be policymakers (and their staff), community leaders (grassroots or grasstops), or industry or nongovernmental organization executives, the problem should be defined in terms relevant to their policy intervention, respectively.
Your problem statement should be 3 to 5 sentences long.
