the example requirement essay

Please: -give up to three practical examples of how you intend to use the knowledge, skills and connections you will gain from your scholarship. Possible tasks can be personal and/or professional; and List any possible constraints you think may prevent you from achieving these tasks. *:

Example 1: Health economics is a field with a severe dearth of trained researchers, particularly in LMICs, where the need is greatest. By developing a career in HE research in Nepal, I aim to address this gap by becoming an internationally trained health economist with a unique and deep practical knowledge of the field realities of rural health systems in Nepal. I actively will contribute to local, regional, national, and international seminars, workshops, conferences and policy dialogues to build awareness of the strengths and weaknesses of HE analysis. I also always engage young Nepali students with enthusiasm for the topic to build capacity and ensure a new generation will be given good training in the field. Possible constraints include the need of funding to foster research and academic environment. I will address this with the help of my mentorship network, both existing and from the university. Coming to DU will be the ideal platform to make the jump towards higher studies and develop as an independent researcher.

Example 2: the scholarship will establish my skills in robust cost-effectiveness evaluation of community level public health interventions with a specific focus on TB. Through my employment at BNMT, I have access to data on a range of interventions and the necessary network to communicate the findings with policy makers to ensure lasting policy and practice change. I will apply my knowledge to conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis of current TB approach with innovative intervention including ACF and socio-economic interventions. conventional DOTS program from provider, health system and patient's perspectives. Possible constraints include effectively and sustainably engaging the relevant stakeholders which I will address through the BNMT established collaborative network.

Example 3: This scholarship provides me opportunity to create important networks not just with public health professional and health economists, but also with community based organisations, equity organizations, and women's organizations. In doing so, it will be possible to harness our collective voices to advocate for health related economic issues, policy reform activities, within the government. The intersectoral and multidisciplinary working increase awareness about their rights to healthcare, reduce disparities in healthcare, protect vulnerable populations through effective community based interventions. This includes the Nepal Public Health Association, Nepal Health Economics Association and equity groups to increase awareness among people about their rights to health care, effective purchasing mechanism and cost-effective interventions at community level. Possible constraints include conflicting political priorities and agendas.

Hopeful of your critical feedback.

In example one, you are presenting 2 examples instead of only 1 example as required. Drop one of the two examples you are using. Keep the one that you feel best responds to the example requirement. I think you should keep the first one since that has the lengthier explanation and hence, can be seen as the more relevant example for the discussion.

Try to develop at least a paragraph that will clearly explain the basis of the constraints you are mentioning in your response. Relate the constraint to the example you are presenting in order to prove that you will certainly need to overcome this hindrance in order to achieve your end goal. Right now, the hindrances you present do not make too much sense. It lacks discussion development. Try to expand on the explanation because it will help to support the reason as to why your example is a requirement for personal and career advancement in this particular field.
