Community Health Needs Assessment & Implementation Plan

The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is done to determine the health needs of Johnston County and develop an implementation plan to outline and organize how to meet those needs.

Complete the Community Health Needs Assessment

Please take a few minutes to complete the survey. The purpose of this survey is to get your opinion about community health issues. Once we have gathered all of the surveys, we plan to compile this information and use it to develop a community health improvement plan with our community public health partners in the area.

Thank you for taking the time to help identify our most pressing health problems and issues to make our community a better and healthier place to live!

The CHNA findings are drawn from an analysis of an extensive set of secondary data (over 100 indicators from national and state data sources) and in-depth primary data from community leaders, health and non-health professionals who serve the community at large, vulnerable populations, and populations with unmet health needs. Through a synthesis of the primary and secondary data, the significant health needs were determined for Johnston County.
