About the Plan
According to the 2016 Georgia Health Ranking Roadmap, Chattooga County has a health ranking of 99 out of 159 counties in Georgia. The Community Health Improvement Plan provides a roadmap for Chattooga County to address and improve the health behavior risk factors, the social and economic barrier to good health, barriers to clinical care services, and the physical environment that contribute to health ranking status.
