The Columbiana County Health Partners are proud to present the 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) Report for Columbiana County, Ohio; which was developed as a multi-sector partnership that supports shared ownership of the phases of community health improvement; including assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation. Collaboration among the partners was essential to align interests and coordinate resources with the goal of effectively promoting better health outcomes in Columbiana County by leveraging multiple perspectives, community relationships and areas of expertise.

This report was designed to assess the health status and needs of the community; identify factors that affect population health; determine the availability of existing resources that can be mobilized to improve health status; and facilitate the development of evidence-based, population-wide interventions and measurable outcomes. The full report is also offered as a resource to individuals and groups, who are interested in using the information to become better informed regarding health care and community agency decision-making.
