This is the only resource to provide a step-by-step framework and expert guidance for preparing a health policy analysis final paper or a capstone project for courses in health policy, public health, and health policy analysis. Building on a blend of theory and practical considerations for creating a successful policy analysis, the text guides students through the process of building an analysis that encompasses value orientations, policy background, issue statement, normative and stakeholder analysis, criteria for success, systematic review of policy options, recommendation, and strategy for adoption. To exemplify the process of creating a health policy analysis paper, the text traces the development of a policy on childhood obesity, the framework of which is directly applicable to a broad spectrum of policy analysis projects.
