Green River District Community Health Assessment for 2023
The Green River District Health Department is excited to announce the release of the 2023 Green River District Health Department Community Health Assessment. The assessment includes data and information from multiple sources, which describe the district’s demographics; health status; morbidity and mortality; socioeconomic characteristics; quality of life; community resources; behavioral factors; the environment (including the built environment); and other social and structural determinants of health status. This document includes a general overview of the district, then takes a deeper dive into each of the district’s 7 counties health status. The Green River District Health Department sponsored the CHA process, which was facilitated in collaboration with Eastern Kentucky University’s Department of Public Health and Clinical Sciences.
The National Association for County and City Health Officials’ (NACCHO’s) Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) framework was utilized in conducting this assessment. MAPP is a community-driven strategic planning process for improving community health. The MAPP process tells the community story by conducting the following assessments: Community Status Assessment, Community Partners Assessment, and Community Context Assessment.
