WHAT WE DO

Ugub conducts Community Needs Assessments, Provision of TOT trainings to community and health workers across the country for:

  • Humanitarian Agencies requiring a Community Health Needs Assessment on affected communities.
  • Public Sector / Municipalities –State Health and Social Service entities constructing a focused analysis of issues related to poverty, and other social determinants of health issues in order to capitalize on community strengths while efficiently addressing prioritized needs.
  • Public sector organizations and direct care providers developing Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse Community Health Needs Assessments to develop and implement effective strategies to address broad-based and/or urgent issues.

Ugub’s Assessment as Action model establishes a continuous process improvement framework. The model works to identify community strengths and prioritized service gaps, needs, and barriers; develop and implement programs; collect process and outcomes data, and revise programs and strategies to better address core issues.

The model simultaneously engages community partners and uses data to create a positive cycle of change. It also develops a deeper understanding of community challenges, and, 2) enables partners to coalesce around – and act upon – the opportunities for population health improvement.
