Community Health Needs Assessment

The South Heartland District Health Department leads community needs assessments every 5 to 6 years using a process called Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) to reassess the District’s health status, strengths and needs. The community needs assessment involves many community partners and serves as a foundation for the Department to continue public health strategic planning and to develop public health improvement plans for the district.

The 2013 and the 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment reports and the describe the process and outcomes of South Heartland’s 2012 and 2015 MAPP assessments, respectively. We are making the full reports available so that other organizations may utilize the information for their own planning. Please contact SHDHD if you have questions about these report.
