Community Health Needs Assessment

The goal of the (CHNA) was to identify strengths and health priorities for the Denali Borough, and to determine which resources are needed to address these priorities.

Synthesis of focus group, interview, and survey data revealed that the top three health priorities for the Denali Borough are:

  • Access to care
  • Mental health and alcohol/ substance use
  • Housing

Other priority health needs include nutrition; physical activity and indoor recreation; road safety and transportation; and care for chronic conditions. Lesser priority needs include sexual health, emergency preparedness, accident prevention, and childcare services. There is a need for health education to address mental health, substance and alcohol abuse, nutrition, physical activity, safe driving, chronic care management, and sexual health.
