Community Health Improvement focuses on the health of the entire population served by the Roanoke City and Alleghany Health Districts and aims to reduce health inequities among specific groups. The program conducts Community Health Assessments (CHAs) to identify health needs and the various social and economic factors that impact health. Based on CHA findings, the program develops action-oriented Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIPs) to support the jurisdictions in becoming healthier places to live.
