Local Health Department  Organizational Self-Assessment

The Organizational Self-Assessment (Self-Assessment) for Addressing Health Inequities Toolkit is designed to assist public health leaders in identifying the necessary skills, practices, and infrastructure to tackle health equity issues. It serves as a baseline measure of capacity and areas for improvement, guides strategic planning, and monitors progress towards established goals. The toolkit includes instruments such as staff surveys, collaborating partner surveys, staff focus groups, and management staff interviews. It also provides guidelines for reviewing internal documents and human resources data. Additionally, the toolkit offers an implementation guide to help organizations assess readiness, prepare for the self-assessment, and take action based on the results. We encourage widespread use of the toolkit and ask that you please credit BARHII if you use or present on the Toolkit.
