Population Health

The Henrico County Health Department works with a wide range of community partners that focus on promoting and improving the health of residents in our community.  Our Population Health team works to understand the issues that impact health in Henrico and seeks better health through active participation of local residents and partners.  In addition, Population Health facilitates a Community Health Worker Volunteer Network to extend reach into communities to improve health.

Community Health Assessment and Improvement Planning

The Community Health Assessment in Henrico was developed using the National Association of County and City Health Officials’ Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) framework.  MAPP helps communities improve health and quality of life through strategic planning that spans the community and is driven by its residents.  This assessment was made possible through the collaboration of many people, organizations, and entities that have an interest in improving the health of Henrico County residents.

As a member of our community, your feedback is very important to us.  Please take a moment to let us know your thoughts on the assessments posted on this page.  Please e-mail Henrico.PopHealth@vdh.virginia.gov.

2017 Community Health Reports

Our plan for action will be under development in spring of 2018. To get involved contact Henrico.PopHealth@vdh.virginia.gov.

This work cannot be done alone.  The assessment process involved over 50 agencies from government, academic, and nonprofit sectors, as well as community residents.  We are grateful for the involvement of our partners and look forward to continued collaboration to improve the health of our county.
