Task 5



Module 2 — Task 5: Generate a List of Community-Specific Environmental Health Issues
 

In this task, the team will collect descriptive information about perceived community concerns. The intent is to identify concerns that are most relevant to community members and to determine how prevalent or widespread these concerns are in the community. Statistical information about the community’s environmental health status is combined with this descriptive information to generate issue profiles in Task 9. A comprehensive list of environmental health issues should be generated, as these will be used to develop community-specific standards and indicators, draft issue profiles, rank concerns, and set priorities for action.

At the completion of this task, the assessment team should have:

  • Data on community knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, and perceptions related to environmental health
  • A manageable list of community-identified environmental health concerns
