Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) Survey


The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) Survey, also referred to as the Community Health Assessment (CHA) Survey, is a comprehensive data collection effort to identify the strengths, challenges, and opportunities to address and improve public health. Every three years, Maricopa County Public Health, in collaboration with community organizations, municipalities, and healthcare partners, conducts a survey to develop a deeper understanding from residents about issues related to quality of life, availability of essential services, physical and physical and mental health, and more. The information gathered from the survey facilitates planning and guides the work toward making Maricopa County a healthier place for all.
