Discussion 1: Moving Upstream to Improve Population Health Down the Road Babies control and 8
bring up their families as much as they are controlled by them; in fact the family brings up baby by
being brought up by him. -Erik H. Erikson A growing body of evidence is linking adult chronic

disease to processes and experiences occurring decades before these diseases manifest themselves.

In some cases. intrauterine influences may be linked to long-term health outcomes. A major

challenge in population health is determining how to influence early life to produce good health in

later years. Some countries do a better job in reducing socioeconomic inequalities and other
determinants of health or mitigating their impact on children’s health and development than 5
others. The challenge for public health professionals is to promote a greater understanding of the
circumstances of early life and to foster policies to benefit those whose health ultimately depends

on family and society. Medical care in middle age can mitigate the consequences but cannot

redress or change the impact of those early factors. Additionally. medical care when you are

already ill is expensive, sometimes providing too much care too late to make a difference. As
demonstrated this week. medical care is less important for producing good health outcomes later

in life. For this Discussion, you examine how the use of concepts of the developmental origins of life
and health can influence adult morbidity. Your Discussion also challenges you to propose ways to
improve child health that will also provide a long-term benefit on population health. To prepare for
this Discussion, complete the readings and View the media in your Learning Resources. Look online
and in the Walden University Library for additional scholarly resources regarding the
developmental origins of health and disease and the impact of childhood policies and programs on
lifelong health to support your discussion post and replies. By Day 3 Post a brief reflection on how
the commonly held sentiment “we are all born equal” may constrain how society thinks about early 5
life. Comment on influences that this concept may overlook or mask. Then, explain two ways the
use of concepts of the developmental origins of life and health can influence adult morbidity.
Describe two challenges to addressing the upstream risk and protective determinants of health in
current health policies and programs in the us. or in other countries. Also, explain why they are
challenges. Finally, offer two suggestions for improving child health that can have a long-term
benefit on population health for one chronic disease and explain why. Expand on your insights
utilizing the Learning Resources.
