Indo-Caribbean Community Health Resources and Needs Assessment (CHRNA)

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This five-page Community Health Resources and Needs Assessment (CHNRA) report informs healthcare providers about the needs of the Indo-Caribbean community in New York City. The CHNRA project is a large-scale health needs assessment in diverse, low-income Asian American communities in New York City that uses a community-engaged and community venue-based approach to assess existing health issues, available resources, and best approaches to meet community needs.

It provides demographic information about the Indo-Caribbean community in New York City, including years living in the United States, high English language proficiency, education, employment, income, and working hours. It examines their perceived health status, identifying top health concerns and listing statistics on health care access, including health insurance coverage, sources of health information, health care providers, routine physical checkups, and barriers to health care. The report's health profile shares statistics about respondents who are overweight or obese, their access to healthy food, and level of physical activity. It discusses their top health concerns, including oral health, mental health, osteoporosis, and risk of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, and shares statistics about cancer screening rates, alcohol use, smoking, seasonal flu vaccination, tuberculosis, Hepatitis B, sleep, use of complementary and alternative medicine, and social environment.
