Community members are encouraged to participate in a short survey from the SHG Health Directorate to help them understand issues that may affect health on St Helena. The directorate can then plan how to address and possibly prevent these issues for the future.
The opportunity will be available as an online survey for adults, an online survey for young people to complete at school, paper questionnaires, and also some face-to-face surveys will be undertaken. Together, the various types of survey will give a strong understanding of health issues across a wide cross-section of the community. The survey is quick to complete and should take about 10 minutes. It is anonymous and confidential.
The survey opens from today, Tuesday 16 April 2019, and closes on Monday, 20 May 2019. You can complete the survey using any of the below options:
