Community Health Assessment, Improvement Plan, and Services Plan
The Genesee, Orleans and Wyoming tri-county Joint Community Health Assessment, Improvement Plan and Services Plan is a part of the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) Prevention Agenda, a blueprint for state and local community action to improve the health of New Yorkers. Developed by a diverse group of stakeholders, this 2016-2018 Prevention Agenda update is a continuation of the 2013-2017 comprehensive plan that identifies goals, measurable objectives and a range of evidence based and promising practices in five priority areas to be implemented by public health, health care and community partners. Local health departments and hospitals located in each NYS county are responsible for enacting a plan to work towards overcoming at least two priorities, with at least one of these priorities addressing a disparity.
