Why does the My Health My Community survey matter?
Reliable, local-level health data is necessary in order to inform the planning of programs and services for our neighbourhoods. . The My Health My Community survey will provide information about the health status and needs of our local populations so that community organizations can create the best programs and services possible.
The success of the survey depends on its ability to engage diverse communities. The more widely the survey is circulated, the better the data will be and, therefore, the greater the ability to access the information we need to deliver well informed services.
The survey asks questions about neighbourhood characteristics, the environment, lifestyle and health status.
At present, the West End has been identified as a neighbourhood in which very few people of chosen to complete the survey. Let’s help turn that around! Visit https://www.myhealthmycommunity.org/ today and contribute to this very important initiative.
