Community Health Assessments

A community health assessment is a careful, systematic examination of the health status of the community that is used to identify key health problems and assets in the community. Data from the assessment will inform decision-making, prioritization of health problems and development of plans to improve the health of the community. The success of the CHA is owned and led by members of each community, so that the results accurately reflect the opinions of people who live, work, play, and pray in each community in the Commonwealth.
