Community Health Assessments
Community health assessment is the foundation for improving and promoting the health of community members. The role of community assessment is to identify factors that affect the health of a population and determine the availability of resources within the community to adequately address these factors. It is a "systematic collection, assembly, analysis, and dissemination of information about the health of the community". Every 3 years as required for Accreditation, the Caldwell County Health Department, along with partners, complete a community health assessment.
