Community Health Profile

  

What is a Community Health Profile?

A community health profile is a collection of information about the characteristics of the community, the health resources within the community, data describing the community and the community's perceptions of health.

 

Why is a Profile Important?

Factual information helps us achieve our mission of working together to promote and improve the health of individuals, families and communities.  It helps us to identify Health Issues and Priorities in our communities.
