Handwashing 2011 Community Health Needs Assessment

One of the most basic purposes of public health is defined by three core functions:


  • Assessment
  • Policy Development
  • Assurance

  • The 2011 Community Health Assessment represents the department’s most recent contribution to that first function: assessing the state of public health in Saint Louis County. The second follows directly from the first: setting our public health goals and priorities through policy development.


    We are very proud of the effort that has been put into the 2011 Community Health Assessment. For the first time, the data collected is available on a sub-county basis, meaning that we can now recognize public health disparities between the different regions of the county – Mid County, North County, South County, and West County.


    Please note: because the “Perceptions” section of the report [Section VII] contains information gleaned directly from the community, statements therein do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of the Saint Louis County Department of Health.
