Residents Asked to Complete Community Health Survey

Apr 28, 2021

The Cumberland County Department of Public Health encourages residents to complete the 2021 Community Health Assessment (CHA) survey. The CHA is a health opinion survey that gathers information about the health and well-being of Cumberland County residents and helps identify ways to address those needs and concerns.

The survey is being conducted by the Health Department, Cape Fear Valley Health System and other agencies. The survey is available online and hard copies are available at the Health Department during normal business hours.  Hard copies will also be available at all eight Cumberland County Public Library locations starting May 3. All surveys must be completed by June 18.

The CHA offers a comprehensive picture of health, needs and resources in the community. The goal of the CHA is to describe the health needs of the community and to develop strategies to address those needs. The CHA is the foundation for all local public health strategic planning, priorities, coordination community action plans, and evaluation. This process is conducted every three to four years to meet requirements for North Carolina Accreditation for both local health departments and non-profit hospitals.
