Community Health Assessments

Comprehensive Community Health Assessment "CHA"

Three Rivers District Health Department serves the four county regions of Carroll, Gallatin, Owen and Pendleton Counties in Kentucky.  With the exception of the city of Carrollton, which is identified as an “urban cluster”, having a population of more than 2,500, but less than 50,000, all of the territory served is considered rural.

This comprehensive community health assessment is intended to be used by the community to identify opportunities for improvement and develop goals and plans to implement change to better the health of the populations living, learning, working, and playing in our communities.

The health of a community is measured by the health outcomes, health factors, policies and programs for the populations therein.  Individual factors such as health behaviors, clinical care, social and economic aspects and the physical environment have a direct affect on the health outcomes, or life expectancy and quality of life of a community. Life expectancy and quality of life are strong indicators of health and subsequently carry a greater weight in determining the overall health of a community.

The health factors and outcomes we have assessed include social determinants of health (SDOH), or “the conditions in places where people live, learn, work, and play” that affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes.
