Community Assessment

A community health assessment (sometimes called a CHA), also known as community health needs assessment (sometimes called a CHNA), refers to a state, tribal, local, or territorial health assessment that identifies key health needs and issues through systematic, comprehensive data collection and analysis. Community health assessments use such principles as

Multisector collaborations that support shared ownership of all phases of community health improvement, including assessment, planning, investment, implementation, and evaluation

Proactive, broad, and diverse community engagement to improve results

A definition of community that encompasses both a significant enough area to allow for population-wide interventions and measurable results, and includes a targeted focus to address disparities among subpopulations

Maximum transparency to improve community engagement and accountability

Use of evidence-based interventions and encouragement of innovative practices with a thorough evaluation

Evaluation to inform a continuous improvement process

Use of the highest quality data pooled from and shared among, diverse public and private sources
