Community Health Needs Assessment/Community Health Improvement Plan

Community Health Assessment: This is a comprehensive assessment that identifies the top health priorities of Polk County and the process used to determine those priorities.

The top three priorities are:

  • Mental Health
  • Nutrition and Physical Activity
  • Substance Abuse


Community Health Improvement Plan: This is a comprehensive 5 year plan that addresses how the PCHD, its partners, and the county will work to address the health priorities identified in the Community Health Assessment.


Polk United's mission is to engage stakeholders who will take collaborative action to create a healthier Polk County. To learn more visit
