The Tulane Health Policy Case Competition gives teams of undergraduate students an opportunity to apply their talents and knowledge to put together a solution to a given health policy program. Students will have an opportunity to interact with school faculty in the course of constructing their solutions. Top teams will present their solutions to a panel of experts for detailed feedback.
This case asks teams of undergraduate students to apply the lens of health policy analysis to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Vaccinations rates have been lagging, especially in southern rural areas. This scenario imagines that you have been tasked by the state government of Louisiana to develop a package of policy proposals to increase vaccination uptake among hesitant populations. In this scenario, state government has set aside $20 million of the federal Coronavirus Relief Funds (CRF) to address hesitancy through your proposals. A good policy will leverage existing state infrastructure as appropriate and include detailed breakdowns of the costs of the policy package.
