DHHR and Putnam County Health Department Encourage Resident Participation in the State Health Assessment Survey

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR), Bureau for Public Health and (insert LHD name) encourage residents to participate in the West Virginia State Health Assessment (SHA). SHA provides valuable insights into the health and well-being of West Virginians.

The SHA is a collaborative process aimed at data collection and analysis to provide an overview of the community’s current health status, needs, and factors that contribute to health outcomes. The SHA helps guide the development of a State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP), a five-year plan developed in collaboration with multi-sector partnerships to address public health issues and themes based on the results of the SHA, by facilitating the prioritization of strategies and activities, identifying collective resources, and determining how to align those resources to achieve improvements in health outcomes.
