Community Health


icon_ch100NACCHO's community health team supports local health department programs and services focused on promoting health and preventing disease through:

  • The development of resources and tools;
  • Provision of technical assistance, continuing education, and capacity building support through demonstration projects; and
  • Facilitation of peer exchange of best practices and tools.

Community health projects address a wide variety of health promotion and disease prevention issues, including chronic disease, HIV/STI, other infectious diseases, injury, adolescent health, reproductive health, immunization, tobacco, primary care, and mental health.

In the Spotlight

NACCHO has released the first module in its Local Health Departments and Hepatitis C educational series. To support local health departments and their partners, NACCHO developed this series to increase knowledge of HCV-related topics, provide information and examples of how local health departments can leverage existing resources to address HCV, and share successful local health department practices and policies for expanding HCV-related services in their communities. Throughout 2015, NACCHO will develop and disseminate additional educational modules, resources, and tools. More »
