Community Health Needs
After identifying needs in the community, the next step is to identify objectives and strategies to address those needs. The process, Community Health Needs Assessment and Health Improvement Plan (CHNA & HIP) is a fundamental element in statewide planning. CHNA & HIP has more than a 20-year history in Iowa and represents local action to promote and protect the health of Iowans.
For the next few years we will be focusing our efforts on the following topics:
- Mental Health
- Physical Activity, Nutrition, and Obesity
- Substance Abuse
For more information on these topics and how we chose them as our priorities, read the 2016 Jones County CHNA/HIP report below!
The Community Health Needs Assessment and Health Improvement Plan are living documents that may be updated periodically.
