Community Health Assessment

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 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: the NC State Center for Health Statistics, the US Census Bureau, the Department of Labor, Economic Development, Hospital admissions, and Emergency Department, County Health Rankings and others.Order Lasix Furosemi
