BACKGROUND/JUSTIFICATION:

The Community Health Assessment (CHA) is a best practice and a requirement for state funding and accreditation. ESSENTIAL SERVICE 1 of the Ten Essential Services of Public Health is to monitor health status to identify community health problems. This is accomplished through routine surveillance, tracking, monthly and annual reports and every four years, a Community Health Assessment.

 

The CHA is used for monitoring indicators, identifying populations at risk, planning, designing and funding interventions.

 

In 2017 health priorities were assessed through a community-wide survey, community meetings, and a priority setting event. The top 4 priority health issues identified were Mental Health, Chronic Disease, Access to Care, and Violence.
