Please use the guidelines below for preparing your final paper for Comparative Health Systems:
Writing a comparative analysis paper is different from other academic papers which may be simply researching on a single topic. For this course, your comparative paper should be using 2 countries from 2 different regions within the textbook. These may be the same two countries used in your midterm analysis. Or you may change to different country/ies, as long as they are from two different regions in the text.
Word count on your midterm outline was expected to be 400-500 words. And if you choose to keep the same two countries for your final paper, you can expand on your outline to 1500-2000 words (not including title page and reference page). There is some flexibility for turning in the assignment anytime between now and the final due date of April 5, at 11:59pm. More writing detail are below.
Your final comparison paper should use BOTH the midterm categories and the 2 additional comparison and discussion sections for the final – see below for ALL the sections:
