  • How healthy are we in Hawaii County?” is one of three key questions addressed in the recently published Community Health Profile 2012, Health…it takes a community.
  • The second key question, “Why is the health of Hawaii County worse that the State of Hawaii?” is addressed by reporting data using the Institute of Medicine framework for population health, which includes: social and economic determinants, health-related behaviors, and health systems.
  • The third key question addressed is, “What would help most to improve the health of the people of Hawaii County.” The report suggests the need to strengthen collaboration to address the underlying social, economic, behavioral and health system causes of the health disparities.
