PUBH6475 Program Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation
Module 3 Discussion
DQ1 Program Development: Objectives, Goals, Mission, and Community Involvement
When planning a health promotion program, the behaviors and conditions you seek to address must be clearly articulated early on. Working with community members to develop a clearly defined mission and specific and measurable goals is an important step.
To prepare for this Discussion, consider an HIV prevention program being proposed by a professor at a local university. The program is being funded by a national HIV/AIDS service organization. The professor has also identified the following stakeholders: two community organizations active in HIV prevention, the local health department, and various community members.
With these thoughts in mind:
By Day 5 of Week 4

Assess whether you expect the identified stakeholders will have difficulty setting program goals and explain why or why not
Identify some additional stakeholders that should be involved in the planning process and explain why you chose them
Describe the collaboration strategies you would use to avoid turf struggles and ensure that all stakeholders have a sense of ownership over the program
Explain and justify why the chosen collaboration strategies would work
By Day 7 of Week 4
Begin engaging with at least two colleagues by providing additional resources and ideas to further the discussion and support or constructively challenge their stated choices and ideas including providing your supported assessment of their proposed stakeholders and collaboration strategies.
