Assessment and planning is the process of using data to understand the factors affecting the health of a population, developing and implementing plans to address the issues identified, and monitoring progress toward specific goals. It is foundational to public health and is performed routinely to address a community's changing needs.
In Colorado, public health assessment and planning is completed at the state and local level on a five year cycle. The Office of Planning and Partnerships leads the assessment and planning process for the state of Colorado and supports local assessment and planning by developing tools and providing training and technical assistance.
