(19) Hispanic Health Assessment


Authors:

Ellis E. Perez, MPH – Government Analyst iI, Florida department of Health

Abstract:

The Hispanic population is the largest colored population group in Orange County, FL, comprising 29.8% of the total population. The county has a rich variety of cultures which includes United States and Non-United States residents from Central America, South America, Mexico, Spain, and the Caribbean. Due to the increasing growth of Hispanic residents, it is essential to assess and gain understanding of the population’s overall health status and well being. This will allow for the provision of the most effective and most reliable form of care and service, with the hope of addressing and preventing any concerning health issues. The 2017 Hispanic Health Assessment (HHA) is the first population specific assessment developed to address the needs of a targeted population in the county. It is an example of the commitment the Florida Department of Health in Orange County has in utilizing best practices to improve the health of community residents. The HHA is an essential tool that answers questions that further explain the population, growth, change, characteristics, and health indicators among Hispanics. This tool can be used to engage community partners in improvement plans and enhance the spread of public health messages.
