Plans For The Future

Plans For The Future

A huge part of public health is planning for the future and anticipating the needs of the public.

Below you will find several projects from 2021 about our community. CDHD staff is working with members of our community to update these documents for this year and into the future.

Please call (308) 385-5175 with questions. 

Every three years, the Central District Health Department works with partners to assess the health and well-being of the community. This process is known as the Community Health Assessment, or the “CHA”. Through the CHA, we learn about things like the top illnesses in our counties, the biggest health concerns, what keeps people from getting the care they need, and more. We collect all this information and share it with our partners and with the public. This information is then used to create a Community Health Improvement Plan, or a “CHIP”.

Below you can find the complete Community Health Assessment from 2021.

This document is an overview of what we call the “CHA” (Community Health Assessment) and the “CHIP” (Community Health Improvement Plan). We do the CHA & CHIP with the help of many community partners. This process happens every three years.
