Community Engagement

Over the past 25 years, Georgia Health Decisions has supported the development of community coalitions to address health issues in every region of the state. We have conducted hundreds of community forums, listening sessions, and focus groups to understand and articulate Georgians’ values, opinions, and attitudes on health and health care to inform public policy, strategic planning, and program design.


Since 2016, Georgia Health Decisions has partnered with Healthcare Georgia Foundation to provide Community Coaches as strategic thought partners to 11 rural Community Health Partnerships funded through The Two Georgias Initiative. GHD Community Coaches are supporting these partnerships as they develop and implement Community Health Improvement Plans to eliminate health disparities and achieve health equity in their communities.  To learn more about the The Two Georgias Initiative, click on the link below.
