Every four years, local health departments across the state are involved in the North Carolina Local Health Department Accreditation Process. Part of the Accreditation process requires that each health department develop a Strategic Plan. A Strategic Plan is a disciplined process aimed at producing fundamental decisions and actions that will shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does what it does.
