Nebraska Statewide Health Needs Assessment

In 2015, the Office of Community Health & Performance Management coordinated a state health assessment (SHA) using the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships process (MAPP). Four assessments were completed including 1) the state public health system assessment, 2) the forces of change assessment, 3) the health status assessment, and 4) the community themes and strengths assessment. The qualitative and quantitative results from the SHA serve as the foundation for setting priorities for the state health improvement plan (SHIP). Below you will find the full SHA report, which outlines the assessment findings. Please e-mail any comments or questions about the report to Jeff Soukup (jeff.soukup@nebraska.gov).
