A CHA, or Community Health Assessment, collects and analyzes data to understand the health needs of a given community. Assessments examine issues such as:
Risk factors for disease, illness and mortality
Community conditions that impact health, such as education, housing, and economics
Inequities in health
Quality of life
The assessment can help identify and prioritize health problems, and facilitate planning and actions to address those problems. Sharing information from a CHA can bring community members together to build a healthier community and prevent disease.

The CHA is a combination of multiple sets of data that have been carefully analyzed to understand what they tell us about the community's health. We've put together an overview of each part of the CHA.
