The aims and objective of the Ethnic and Racial approaches to the Community Health Program are to increase the linkage among the minority communities and the health care system with unique economic, cultural and social circumstances; and changing the condition of the chronic disease and the risk factors in the local communities (Handler, Kennelly & Peacock, 2010). Support the cultural tailoring intervention in addressing the prevention of the health behaviors of poor nutrition, physical inactivity, and use of tobacco. Clinical effort and links the community to improve access to preventive and healthcare programs at the community level. Support evaluation, dissemination, and implementation of practice ad strategies essential evidence related to nutrition, tobacco, community-clinical linkage, and physical activity that ultimately leads to the reduction of health disparities in the conditions of chronic hypertension, obesity, type 2diabetes, and heart disease.

Robert Gordon, who serves at Michigan Department of Human and Health Services as the director, where he is an overseer at the Medicaid programs, Public health, food assistance, Children Protective Service, and many more service programs of human or health. He has the following characters that made me choose him. He has excellent communication skills.

He has the ability to ethical leadership, being a better leader is a significant part of the job as well, and he has skills and experience of leading others in various tasks. He has excellent organization skills, the position requires him to handle a lot of different situations and things, and by this, it is of importance that he has strong capabilities of the organization. It will enable him to organize the implementation process in the right way. He has the ability to developing the budget of the department and allocating money to the right and appropriate initiatives and programs (Winter &Maisch, 2015).
He knows the way of reviewing data with relation to health and determining areas of weakness and strength. He can have a consultation with the public health workers to gain a good understanding concerning the affecting issues of the community. He will be able to ensure that all the workers of public health do follow state health or federal laws. He can give the information director’s board of health detailing strategies and activities. He can monitor and design the plan concerning emergency response to ensure that there is safety in the community. He can hold the hearing that is related to the issues concerning public health. Finally, he will maintain and establish a better working relationship with several private and public health organizations.
He supports the Racial and Ethnic approach to community health programs on his politics. He is in the description as the quarterback to the US president Barrack Obama administration with evidence that is on the grounds of the initiative concerning the policy-making, which tied the funding program tightly to an evaluation of high quality. During his period in OMB, he begins the designing of initiatives to infants or maternal visits, development of a child, and child welfare. His responsibility in overseeing the children’s and family’s administration on aging at the human and health services department, nutrition, and food programs at the agriculture department, together with the administration on societal security.

The critical dates for the implementation of the strategy are between June 1st and June 15th. The reason for choosing these dates is that all bills must pass by June 15th.
State and local public health agencies have many barriers to getting the based evidence engagement and practice the research required to build evidence on existence.[footnoteRef:2] Barriers are as follows; limited funding and time, shortage of the appropriate training of staff, and lacking knowledge among the practitioners concerning the evidence grounded on health. Even to the relatively better agencies, this research nature offers the implications. For instance, include randomization controlling trials unworkable and infrequent on the public health area, and fewer legal methods must be in place. Societies are an integral portion of the practice in the public health environment, and health officer’s voices are vital to the consideration in implementation together with the design of research on practice grounds. Community-based participant research is one way that facilitates community engagement in researching of the projects. [2: ]
HIA is one of the ways of assessing both the burden of health from conditions in sectors rather than health and potential issues concerning the improvement of health by making those conditions. [footnoteRef:3]HIA is the combination of methods, tools, and procedures by which a program, project, or policy may be in judgment as it is a capable effect on the healthy population and the distribution of the impact with a community. HIA may facilitate actions on intersectional to increase health by evaluation of the health effects of activities in areas like education, transportation, agriculture, housing, and economic policy. HIA is most commonly in use in New Zealand and Western Europe and Australia than in the US; this can be in use at the level of community in maximizing positive health effects and minimizing advertisement on health effects of the project.

The first ethical practice principle is that the aim of public health is principally addressing the fundamental disease case and health requirements that aim in the prevention of adverse outcomes in health (Duffy, 2013). The second ethical practice principle is that public health is supposed to get the health of communities in ways that respect the individual’s rights in the city. The third ethical practice principle is that public health programs, priorities, and policies must be in development and evaluation via processes that ensure input opportunities from the members of the community. The fourth ethical practice principle is that public health must work and advocate for the disenfranchised members of the community empowerment, pointing at ensuring accessibility of underlying conditions and resources for the health department.
The fifth ethical practice principle is that public health must aim at seeking the information necessary in the implementation of effective programs and policies that promote and protect health. The sixth ethical practice principle is that institutions of public health must give communities the essential information they require for decisions on programs or policies and must have the consent of the cities for implementation purposes. The seventh ethical practice principle is that institutions of public health must behave inappropriate behavior in the information they receive amid the resources and the present mandate from the public. The eight ethical practice principles are that policies and programs of public health must incorporate a wide range of approaches that respect and anticipate diverse cultures, beliefs, and values in the community.
The ninth ethical practice principle is that public health policies and programs must be in implementation in a way that is enhancing the social and physical environment. The tenth ethical practice principle is that institutions in public health must protect information confidentiality, which may result to harm to communities or individuals if the public knows the information. Exceptions should be in justification based on higher likelihoods of significant harm to other people. The eleventh ethical practice principle is that institutions in public health must make sure that their employees have professional competence. The last ethical practice principle is that public health employees and institutions must engage in affiliations and collaborations in a way that builds the institutions and open effectiveness and trust.
The ethics code for public health has clarity on the ethical principles and public health distinctive factors that follow or gives a response to the unique aspects. It provides clarity to communities and populations the public health sector ideals which provide service to them. The ethics code plays a significant role in guiding public health practitioners and institutions as a way in which they will be accountable. The ethical practice principle connects with my general health policy because it deals with the ethics public health practice must follow to ensure they do not violate the rights of communities and individuals when providing federal health services (Andresen & Bouldin, 2010).
