Community Health Assessment

What Is a Community Health Assessment (CHA)?

Assessing the health status of the community is a core public health function provided by Navajo County Public Health Services District (NCPHSD). The data and information in this CHA helps to better educate health department staff, government officials, and the community about our local health status and needs. It also helps to develop policy and operational priorities, allocate community resources, and plan for action to improve health.

Health Begins in Our Communities

NCPHSD has the proud distinction of serving Navajo County residents to create the greatest possible opportunity for health for all of our residents. From Kayenta all the way to Whiteriver and Winslow across to Holbrook, we serve a wide range of neighborhoods and communities, all with unique opportunities and challenges to health. This CHA provides key data and information about those challenges and opportunities.
