By News Release @ 2:43 PM :: 3896 Views :: Hawaii Statistics, Health Care

America’s Health Rankings® 2017 Annual Report


America’s Health Rankings® was built upon the World Health Organization definition of health:

“Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

The model reflects that determinants of health directly influence health outcomes. A health outcomes category and four categories of health determinants are included in the model: behaviors, community & environment, policy and clinical care.
