Harnett County,
North Carolina

Health Department 

Healthy Harnett has identified focus areas, established objectives and developed Action Plans to improve the health of the people in Harnett County. Community Action Plans have been created to address each of the identified health priorities.

The community health priorities identified include the following health concerns to be addressed over the next four years which align with county residents input and using the Healthy North Carolina 2020 priority focus areas and objectives.

(1) Nutrition & Physical Activity, (2) Maternal & Child Health, and (3) Motor Vehicle Safety.

In these priority areas, Harnett County’s performance on health indicators differs substantively from peer counties and from the state of North Carolina. In addition, community members have rated these concerns as significant with regard to the urgency, severity, and feasibility of improvement efforts.

Two of the three priorities (Nutrition & Physical Activity and Maternal & Child Health) are specifically aligned with the priorities of Healthy North Carolina 2020, while the third (Motor Vehicle Safety) represents a community health concern in which the progress being made statewide with reducing fatal crashes is not being paralleled in local data. For more information contact the Health Education Division Belinda Rayner, Public Health Educator 910-814-6196 or 910-893-7550.
