Local Public Health Assessment and Planning

All Community Health Boards (CHBs) in Minnesota are required to engage in assessment and planning to yield local public health priorities and focus local resources.  These plans, adopted in 2013-2014, will guide the work of the CHB and can be used to advocate for resources, work toward visible results, and demonstrate accountability and efficiency.

Community Assessment is one of the core functions of public health. Local Community Health Boards use national, state and local data to assess the community's health status and identify ongoing and emerging health issues.  

The Kandiyohi - Renville Community Health Board has prepared the following Community Health Assessment for 2013. The purpose of this community health assessment of both Kandiyohi and Renville Counties is to collect and analyze data in a way that educates the community of important health priorities and mobilizes them to leverage resources and create a plan of action to improve the community's health.
