CHNA Statewide Outcomes

Community Health Services Development (CHSD)

CHSD Philosophy:

  • Healthcare is a local affair.
  • Healthcare delivered in rural communities is affordable, high quality, and necessary to the good health of the entire community.
  • Citizens of rural communities/counties should take responsibility for the health of the community.

Effective problem-solving by communities is the most important factor in the survival of rural health services.
