As a health care professional for an international health care network, you plan to visit 7 foreign countries this year as part of a communicable disease prevention program. Before you travel, you need to provide information to your assistants about the health care services in the countries you will be visiting, as well as on the World Health Organization (WHO), the agency that is concerned with international public health.

- Provide examples that show how the WHO is involved with global health care assistance.
- Explain the role that the WHO plays in the prevention of communicable diseases.
- Select 7 foreign countries, and briefly describe the communicable disease situation in the selected countries. Include your statistics in a table format.
- What are the possible sources of financing for programs like the one in which you are involved?
Be sure to support your information by citing at least 2 scholarly references using APA format.
