Local Public Health Assessment and Planning - Minnesota Dept. of Health

Local Public Health Assessment and Planning: 2015-2019 Cycle

All Minnesota community health boards must participate in Assessment and Planning to determine local public health priorities and focus local resources.

The phases and deliverables below were developed through a state-local partnership process, and are based on recommendations from the State Community Health Services Advisory Committee (SCHSAC). The assessment and planning process allows community health boards to meet state statutory requirements, and aligns with Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) national public health standards.
