Public Health
The Norfolk Department of Public Health (NDPH), in collaboration with a Community Advisory Board, is leading a new initiative to improve the health of our community! 
Norfolk Department of Public Health
For the last year, we worked with community partners and residents to identify and better understand significant health issues in Norfolk. To identify these issues, we used a process called MAPP (Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships). This process applies strategic thinking, community input and data analysis to prioritize health issues and begin identifying ways to address them. Learn more about our MAPP process.

Through community and partner feedback, we prioritized two issues – safe communities and chronic diseases (diabetes, heart disease, obesity) -- to begin working on together. We also prioritized a third issue – sexual health and plan to have a meeting soon to help address this problem.

We are in this together. We need your help. In the coming months, we hope to gain a better understanding of the resources that already exist in our community and to begin developing a community health improvement plan. In order to create meaningful change, we need this plan to be creative and to address the problems at the heart of the problem. We need help identifying the best solutions.

Norfolk Department of Public Health is hosting several sessions to brainstorm ideas to include in action plans to make Norfolk a healthier and safer place to be. Please click on the links below, review the flyers and plan to join us at our community meetings to provide your feedback!

Residents and community stakeholders came together to begin planning how we could make Norfolk a safer and healthier place for everyone.

  • Summary presentation of Safe Communities and Chronic Disease meetings held on Thursday, January 12, 2017.
  • Summary presentation of Safe Communities and Chronic Disease meetings held on Friday, December 9, 2016.
Also, community leaders and residents are working together to transform Norfolk into the healthiest city in Virginia. How can we make our neighborhoods healthier? You tell us. Come roll up your sleeves and join us at a neighborhood meeting. Click on the community meetings flyer for more details.
