Community Health Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan CHACHIP 2017 first page.JPG


Public health is tasked with conducting a Community Health Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan every five years to inform the public and guide community improvement efforts. This task requires the collaboration and cooperation of multiple community partners. Sincere appreciation is extended to all those who gave of their time and expertise in completing this assessment.

The Franklin County 2017 CHACHIP Team utilized a modified version of the assessment process of MAPP (Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships). Partner meetings were held beginning in early 2016 through December 2017. Partners reviewed progress in the 2012 Community Health Improvement Plan and discussed the previous regional community vision. A new vision for Franklin County specifically was developed as "A community that is supportive of a healthy lifestyle for all its citizens."
