Community Health Needs Assessment

We want to improve the health and well-being of Wake County residents. But, we can’t do it without your help.

Wake County Human Services, the local hospitals and our community partners have launched the 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment to gather input from those who know the county best – our citizens. 

Getting involved is easy! Take our survey to answer questions on topics ranging from housing and education to access to health care. It takes less than 20 minutes to complete. You can take the 2019 CHNA Survey in English or Spanish.

Let’s talk timing
The survey process is now underway and ends on July 31, 2018. We hope you and your family and friends will get involved, and help make Wake County an even better place to live, work and play.

What will you do with the surveys?
We’ll take the results and review them. Then, we’ll go back to the residents early next year and ask you to help us prioritize all the needs you identified.  

We’ll use your responses to create a report that will help the county, the hospitals and our community partners develop a strategic action plan. Together, we’ll use this plan as the road map to improving the health and well-being of our community.

Is my information confidential?
Yes. We will not ask for your name or any other details that identify you.

Who’s leading this effort?
This is a collaborative effort among Wake County Human Services; WakeMed Health & Hospitals, Duke Raleigh Hospital and UNC Rex Healthcare;  Advance Community Health (formerly known as Wake Health Services); United Way of the Greater Triangle; Alliance Behavioral Healthcare, Youth Thrive and Wake County Medical Society Community Health Foundation.

The process is overseen by a steering committee made up of more than 60 community partners including local government, hospitals, schools, faith-based organizations, non-profit organizations, businesses and other stakeholders.

How often do you conduct this survey?
The CHNA is done every three years. Here is a link to the 2016 assessment. In the interim years, Wake County publishes the State of the County's Health (SOTCH) Report. The SOTCH Report provides information on the health status of the county, based on the action plans and priorities established as a result of the CHNA.
