The Virginia Atlas of Community Health is the product of a collaborative effort between GeoHealth Innovations and Community Health Solutions with generous support from the Richmond Memorial Health Foundation.  The Atlas is an online resource for community health resources and a platform for creating and interacting with a vast array of community health indicators.

From INSIGHT to ACTION

The Atlas pledges to help you go “From Insight to Action” with all of the tools and data provided.  Insight is gained through accessing over 200 community health indicators areas in the Data section including adult/youth health risk, maternal and infant health, mortality, and other social determinants of health.  In the Maps section, a set of ready to go maps allows you to quickly visualize and interact with key indicators or build a custom map from the full menu of profile categories and geographic levels.

Action is taken by exploring the Actions Guides and examining issues through different lenses in Perspectives.  The Action Guides help you get started in specific topic areas and learn best practices.  Here you can apply the maps and data in meaningful ways.  Perspectives show you community health issues from a variety perspectives and aid in engaging stakeholders.
