Community Health Status

Contact Us

A community’s health is more than just the individual behaviors that you or your neighbors, families, friends do (smoking, eating, working out, etc.); it is also the neighborhood you grow up in, the school(s) you attend, the job you have, your access to care, and the quality of air & water. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation breaks down how these factors affect overall length and quality of an individual and a community. The Florida Department of Health takes in to account these factors when developing the Community Health Needs Assessment and the Community Health Improvement Plan. We work with community organizations, nonprofits, businesses, hospitals, and local government officials to strategically target and affect priority areas within the community.

 This graphic depicts how policies and programs influence health factors which, in turn, influence health outcomes. Health factors are broken into four major categories: Health behaviors; clinical care; social and economic factors; and physical environment. Health behavior examples as listed are tobacco use, diet & exercise, alcohol & drug use, and sexual activity. Clinical care examples as listed are access to care and quality of care. Social and economic factor examples as listed are education, employment, income, family and social support, and community safety. Physical environment examples as listed are air and water quality, housing and transit. Health outcomes are defined as length of life and quality of life.
