COMMUNITY HEALTH

 


Community Health
is focused on providing Denver with the resources and education that delivers the benefits of good health to each citizen. Here you will find programs and initiatives that ensure a better quality of life for everyone in the city and county of Denver.This includes Denver's Office of HIV ResourcesHealth Impact AssessmentsSubstance Misuse and Overdose Prevention, and Tobacco Legislation and Enforcement, and programs Safe Routes to School, Community Active Living CoalitionHealthy Corner Stores.

The health of a community depends on more than access to health care. Healthy communities are composed of our physical environment, healthy opportunities, support, and where individuals easily connect with community partners, healthy food systems, and safe environments. Increased access to these items allows individuals of a healthy community to thrive.
