Every four years local public health agencies throughout North Carolina conduct a comprehensive Community Health Assessment (CHA). The assessment process is coordinated by the local health department, with support from the Healthy Carolinians partnership, as well as many local agencies, businesses and community members.
Every four years the State of North Carolina requires every local health department and Healthy Carolinians Partnerships to conduct a community health assessment. A community health assessment is a process that allows the members of the community and stakeholders to gain a better understanding of the health needs and concerns of the community.
During the three interim years, the local health department is responsible for issuing the State of the County Health (SOTCH) report.
