Health Assessment Lens
This tool is organized around eight health categories
Each section begins with a brief introduction of the health category and then contains a series of detailed questions. The Lens is designed to provide the user with a way to easily identify health amenities and gaps within their communities. It has an application for scoping out a plan, project, or program to assist the user in finding specific resources. Scoping refers to the early steps taken to identifying why a plan, project, or program is being considered, and identifying the issues or aspects that need to be considered before starting the process. Additionally, the Lens can be used to assess existing plans, programs, and to inform working plans to better integrate health into decisions and actions.
