Community Health Assessment (CHA)

Colorado public health departments are mandated through Colorado Senate Bill 194-Health Reauthorization Act to complete a comprehensive community health assessment  every five years.


Community Health Assessments look at various health data points to determine where health problems exist and what contributes to those problems. Pueblo Department of Public Health & Environment (PDPHE) partners with various county-wide organizations and individuals to complete community health assessments.


The most recent assessment was completed in 2021. The 2021 CHA Report summarizes the process and outcomes. For a condensed version, please read the 2021 CHA Report_Condensed.
