Where and how we live, learn, work, and play affect our health. Understanding how these factors influence health is critical for developing the best strategies to address them. To accomplish these goals, the Florida Department of Health in Monroe County led a comprehensive community health planning effort to measurably improve the health of Monroe County residents. This effort included two major phases:

1. A Community Health Assessment (CHA) to identify the health-related needs and strengths of Monroe County

2. A Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) to determine major health priorities, overarchinggoals, and specific objectives and strategies that can be implemented in a coordinated wayacross Monroe County

In addition to guiding future services, programs, and policies for community agencies and organizations, the CHA and CHIP are also required for the health department to earn accreditation by the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB), a distinction which indicates that the agency is meeting national standards for public health system performance.
