Public health organizations and their partners work tirelessly to improve health and health equity in communities across the country. Through years of experience working with communities, CHC understands that, while models of community health improvement are often depicted as linear or cyclical, the reality is that community health improvement is dynamic and ever changing. The needs, the players, the resources and opportunities, and the challenges are different from community to community and within the same community over time or in different settings. This complexity requires a deep toolbox and the ability to adapt, and CHC supports communities by bringing forward health improvement strategies that work and discovering how they can be adapted to fit a specific context.
We offer expertise in both the process of improvement – from engagement to assessment and planning to implementation and improvement – and in the content of improvement – from various health outcomes and behaviors to social determinants of health to the provision of services to addressing the broader system and context. We look to the science of improvement, as well as the practice-based knowledge of the community and state leaders who have created change, but not written down how they did it.
