Community Health Assessment

Who it helps: County Health Councils in TN

The County Health Assessment (CHA) aims to increase the impact of existing Health Councils by providing a framework for councils to conduct a locally-led needs assessment process. The CHA guides Health Council members through data collection and review to determine up to three priorities for the County Health Council to address through cross-sector collaboration. Through this process, each county brought together diverse stakeholders to look at data, identify disparities, and select up to three priority areas to work on. Building on local expertise and community engagement, and with focus on vulnerable populations, the CHA was able to drive collaborative action on upstream drivers of health.
