In 2011, APRI (formerly CUPA) conducted a community health assessment for the Darke County Health Department (DCHD). The survey was based upon the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as health assessments conducted by neighboring counties and priority health needs within the county. The purpose of the health needs assessment is to assess the prevalence of disease and behavioral risk factors,assess broad community health issues and shape a broader definition of community health, monitor the impact of community health action plans and trends in behavioral modifications and provide a vehicle to discuss ways to improve community health.
