2015 Community Health Assessment 

The Community Health Assessment process is a four‐year cycle in which local health departments across North Carolina are charged with the responsibility of conducting a Community Health Assessment (CHA) in their respective counties. The CHA is required of public health departments in the consolidated agreement between the North Carolina Division of Public Health and the local public health agency. Furthermore, a CHA is required for local public health department accreditation through the NC Local Health Department Accreditation Board (G.S. § 130A-34.1).

Community Health Assessments are the foundation for improving and promoting the health of the community. The role of the assessment is to identify factors that affect the health of a population and determine the availability of resources within the community to adequately address those issues. The completed CHA serves as the basis for prioritizing the community’s health needs and culminates in planning to meet those needs.
