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.
Priority Areas: (1) Diabetes/ Nutrition (2) Heart Disease (3) Cancer.
The community health priorities identified include the following health concerns to be addressed over the next three years which align with county residents input and using the Healthy North Carolina 2020 priority focus areas and objectives.
As this report is now completed, several next steps are needed to move the CHA from assessment to action:
- Results from the 2019 Community Health Assessment will be disseminated to the community via online access, community organizations, media, and promotion through partnerships.
- Action plans outlining evidence-based strategies to address the county’s health priorities will be developed and submitted to the state.
- An annual State of the County’s Health (SOTCH) Report will be compiled and released to provide timely updates on health indicators related to our community and the work surrounding our health priorities.
