Strategic public health information

Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)

JSNAs are developed jointly by local health and social care partners. They provide a detailed picture of health needs of the local population, usually focusing on a specific topic. The information is used to identify actions that local agencies will need to take to improve the wellbeing of individuals and communities. Find out more on the JSNA website.
