What is Community Inclusion?

The Community Inclusion in Colorado maps (CICOmaps) were created by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and University of Colorado Assistive Technology Partners to enhance current emergency preparedness and response planning and resources by making location-based community information easy-to-access. The maps include community demographics and functional characteristics at the census-tract (sub-county) level. They include the locations, service areas, and phone numbers of community providers and health care facilities.

CDPHE acknowledges that generations-long social, economic, and environmental inequities result in adverse health outcomes. They affect communities differently and have a greater influence on health outcomes than either individual choices or one’s ability to access health care. Reducing health disparities through policies, practices, and organizational systems can help improve opportunities for all Coloradans.
