Advancing and Promoting Community Health: Opportunities for Accountable Communities for Health and Community Health Centers

Accountable Communities for Health (ACHs) are multi-sector, community-based partnerships that aim to address community health and social needs, and Community Health Centers (CHCs) provide important community-based healthcare services for underserved and medically vulnerable populations. Given the critical role that both ACHs and CHCs play in addressing health-related social needs and social determinants of health, a survey of ACHs on CHC engagement was conducted to better understand opportunities and challenges for CHC participation in ACHs.
