Community Health Assessments and Improvement Plans
The Live Well San Diego vision was a response to a startling statistic that found that throughout the nation and locally three behaviors (poor nutrition, lack of physical activity and tobacco use) were contributing to four diseases (heart disease/stroke, cancer, type-2 diabetes and respiratory conditions) that resulted in over 50% of the deaths in the nation (3-4-50: Chronic Disease in San Diego County).
A Community Health Assessment (CHA) is a collaborative process of collecting information to help educate and mobilize communities, develop priorities, secure resources and plan actions to improve a region’s health. The CHA sets the framework for developing Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIP), also known as Community Enrichment Plans.
The CHIP outlines an action plan to address several strategic focus areas that are based on community health, safety and thriving needs identified by the Community Health Assessment. The CHIP helps health officials and community members’ work together to set priorities, direct the use of resources, and develop and implement projects and programs to improve community health and wellness over the long term.
