My Health My Community Survey Results Released
Community health profiles based on the latest analysis from the My Health My Community survey have been released. The results reflect 33,000 respondents across the Vancouver Coastal and Fraser regions.
My Health My Community is a web-based health and wellness survey that asks specific information about the health status and health needs of the local population - a vital step in planning, delivering, and evaluating local health programs and policies. This information can be used by local governments, healthcare decision-makers, academia, and community stakeholders to collaboratively tackle health inequalities and shape community services and amenities to meet local needs.
To continue supporting your work, the My Health My Community Team will be developing a data portal in the future. It will provide access to community-level My Health My Community data. They will also further analyze the data to provide an in-depth look at key community health issues in our region, and share these special reports with you as they are completed.
We look forward to continuing the dialogue around health and well-being in your community!
My Health My Community is a non-profit partnership between Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), Fraser Health (FH) and the eHealth Strategy Office (eHSO) at the University of British Columbia (UBC).
