MHIKNET Toolkits: Health in Manitoba

Manitoba Community Health Assessments

The purpose of a community health assessment is to collect, analyze and present information so that the health of the population can be understood and improved, and to provide evidence to inform health service planning. It provides baseline information about the health status of community residents, tracks health outcomes over time, and helps to identify opportunities for disease prevention, health promotion and health protection.
