NACCHO’s Rural Health Section

“This initiative calls for the development of Rural Health Section composed of NACCHO members and partners working together on specific rural public health issues across multidisciplinary and programmatic expertise in support of NACCHO’s mission.”

NACCHO seeks to support the rural health department’s role as strategist in leveraging investments that strengthen the performance and management of their health system, increasing the access to high quality foundational capabilities and essential health services, and engaging individuals, coalitions and communities in the management of their own health and health services to ensure better health outcomes and improved population health status.

This initiative calls for the development of Rural Health Section composed of NACCHO members and partners working together on specific rural public health issues across multidisciplinary and programmatic expertise in support of NACCHO’s mission. It is seen as an exclusive team of local health professionals and national partners assembled to articulate a high level strategy for advocacy, goal attainment, structural system requirements, resources and approaches to improve rural health.
