Abstract

The community health needs assessment and health improvement planning (CHNA&HIP) process incorporates three core functions of public health—assessment, assurance, and policy development—responsibilities of Iowa’s local boards of health. Under the leadership of the boards of health, local public health agencies, together with their partners, identify their community’s pressing health needs and take action that assures these needs are addressed. In many cases, the action requires policy changes. In 2018, local public health agencies submitted progress reports on their health improvement objectives and strategies. Again this year, agencies are using solid, evidence-based strategies, but also are trying out innovative approaches to improve their community’s health status. Cross-sector collaboration characterizes what is happening in nearly every county for advancing the health of Iowans.
