A community health assessment (CHA) is a systematic process to collect and analyze community health information and prioritize community health issues. Granville Vance Public Health, along with many partners across both counties, conducts a CHA every three years.  The last community health assessment was conducted in 2015.

Granville Vance Public Health is currently conducting the 2018 Community Health Assessment in partnership with the NC Institute of Public Health and a CHA Steering Committee.  Over the course of 9 months, the group will gather information directly from community residents through surveys and forums and review state and national data. The final report of this CHA will be available in March 2019.

The State of the County Health (SotCH) report provides an update on the progress made addressing the health priorities identified in the most recent community health assessment, the changes to our counties that influence these priorities, and the new and emerging health issues in the counties we serve.

The GVPH annual report summarizes the programs and services provided by Granville Vance Public Health and the impact of that work in the surrounding community.  The annual report also includes financial reporting on categories of revenues and expenses.
