A community health needs assessment (CHNA) is a report that identifies the healthcare and health-related (food, housing, etc.) needs of a community’s residents. The goal of a CHNA is to systematically assess a community’s unmet needs in order to develop strategies to address them.

CHNAs can be a powerful tool to create healthier communities if reporting entities are supplied strong guidance, sufficient resources and solicit input from a diversity of stakeholders. Some communities have exceeded expectations by conducting coordinated, city-or county-wide community health needs assessments produced by collaboratives of community stakeholders to comprehensively assess residents’ needs.

This webinar will highlight three examples of communities (in LA, NC and OR) that are taking CHNA requirements to the next level.
