Arizona Health Matters brings non-biased data, local resources and a wealth of information to one, accessible, user-friendly location. The intent is to give communities the tools they need to read and understand the public health indicators that affect the quality of their residents’ lives. The tools can also help those communities set goals and evaluate progress.
- Community groups, schools, health associations, chambers of commerce, tourism and many other organizations can use this information to show the great benefits of living in Arizona as well as opportunities for improvement, with specific information.
- Master planners and government can use this data to establish community goals on a variety of platforms. The data is updated whenever source data is updated providing the most up-to-date information of its kind.
The evolving nature of this website allows all counties within Arizona to contribute information and ideas. The promising practices section highlights exemplary programs and successes of local, state and national health departments; it also allows individuals to search for information when they face a similar situation or as a resource.
Our goal is to strengthen and build healthier communities through the provision of state-of the art web-based assessment and improvement tools. We hope you find it beneficial.
