JSNA: Index of reports

(needs assessments, papers, summaries, topics)

The main aim of Suffolk’s Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)is to accurately assess the health needs of a local population in order to improve the physical and mental health and wellbeing of individuals and communities.  The JSNA underpins the Health and Wellbeing Strategy

It is not just one report - it is a rolling programme of documents and is a central resource for health, and the wider determinants of health, in Suffolk.

This page is an alphabetical list linking to documents (from the past five years) that form the JSNA, and also groups documents by year - see the dropdown lists on the right.

Do also look at the latest State of Suffolk report (2019), which has much more information, including broadband coverage (How we communicate), crime and fire figures (How we stay safe), and links between deprivation and fast food outlets (How we sustain Suffolk). The State of Suffolk report also organises these documents by subject.
