Community Health Assessment (CHA) / Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA)
Duplin County Health Department and Vidant Duplin Hospital participate in the Regional CHNA. We are part of the 33 eastern counties that are participating in this initiative. CHNA is on a three year cycle and is used to identify priority health issues and to plan interventions to build healthier communities in Duplin County. The primary data is collected from county residents by way of surveys and focus groups, and the secondary data is gathered from many sources including but not limited to: NC State Center for Health Statistics, US Census Bureau, Department of Labor, Economic Development, Hospital admissions and Emergency Department, County Health Rankings and others.
We are currently collecting 2021 CHNA Surveys. Please take this anonymous survey to help us identify the areas we need to improve on to better the health of our residents. CHNA 2021 English Version CHNA 2021 Spanish Version
Health ENC has all the CHNA data collected through community surveys, focus groups and the secondary statistics. Please visit the website for a wealth of information on our county and our neighboring counties.
On the years between the CHNA the Health Department completes a State of the County Health Report. This report looks at the progress made on the Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIP) and reviews the available health data and trends.
