Follow-up National Assessment on Local Health Departments and Disability

NACCHO recently published a follow-up to a 2014 assessment looking at practices, awareness, and inclusion of people with disabilities in local health departments’ public health practices.

The 2014 baseline assessment results indicated that LHDs may lack awareness of the people with disabilities in their jurisdictions and have poor knowledge of health disparities affecting people with disabilities.

The goal of the 2018 follow-up was to compare LHD practices and awareness about people with disabilities in their jurisdictions to the baseline data acquired in 2014. Additional questions in this assessment that were not included in 2014 inquire about LHD community engagement and staff training.
