What is a Community Health Assessment?

A Community Health Assessment, or CHA, is an organized, systematic effort to identify and assess the health status of a community. It’s a critical resource for local leaders who are seeking information about how their community is faring in key health areas, such as infant mortality, cancer rates, and sexually transmitted infections. The key to a good community health assessment is knowing and understanding your community—and who’s living there.
