Isle of Wight Facts and Figures


Welcome to the 2019-20 Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) for the Isle of Wight

The JSNA paints a picture of local needs so we can work together to improve lives for the residents of the Isle of Wight. It supports the Health and Wellbeing Board to develop an over-arching Health and Wellbeing Strategy for the Island based on the needs of residents.

View the Health and Wellbeing Strategy (2018-2021) (PDF, 1MB, 36 pages).

The strategy responds to the needs and priorities identified, and plans what services and activities are required to address them The first comprehensive Isle of Wight JSNA report was published as a document in 2009. The JSNA is now published solely online and updated as required with new and refreshed information on a wide range of topics, which includes in-depth pieces of work focusing on specific themes.

In addition to the locally published JSNA, there is a lot of information available in the Public Health Outcomes Framework for the Isle of Wight which can be viewed on the Public Health England website.

The JSNA is an on-going, iterative process, involving partner organisations, the voluntary sector and wider community whose work affects people’s health and wellbeing. It is available online to help ensure that information about health and wellbeing on the Island is made more easily accessible to all of these groups, in order to inform and improve decision-making and prioritisation at all levels.  We are currently undertaking a review of the way we make the information in the JSNA available, if you wish to provide any feedback please email

The information which currently makes up the JSNA is available on the 'Factsheets and Figuresheets' tab at the top of this page.
