County Health Reports

Community Health Assessment and State of the County Health Reports 

The Community Health Assessment (CHA) is an ongoing process that assists Nash County in aligning its resources, programs and strategies to address community concerns. It is a systematic collection, assembly, analysis and dissemination of information about the community's health. Every three years, Nash County Health Department and Nash UNC Health Care collaborate with community leaders, businesses, medical providers, school systems, and other partners to assess the community health needs. The CHA team identifies, collects, analyzes, and disseminates information on community assets, strengths, resources, and needs through collaborative efforts. In between the CHA, the State of the County Health Report (SOTCH) is developed to provide the community with an updated program and community efforts to address health concerns. The 2021 CHA Top Three Health Priorities include:
  • Metabolic Syndrome (focus on Heart Disease, Cardiovascular Disease/Stroke, Diabetes and Obesity)
  • Poverty (focus on Access and Low-Income)
  • Behavioral Health (focus on Substance use)
