Technical assistance at the Georgia Health Policy Center (GHPC) is tailored to focus on helping each community build local capacity to increase access to care and improve the health status of its residents. GHPC’s technical assistance supports agencies’ and communities’ programmatic and organizational development.
Our technical assistance focuses on helping communities develop a strategic approach to program implementation, building capacity using technical and adaptive approaches, and focusing on long-term sustainability. To date we have partnered with more than 1,000 rural and urban communities around the nation.
GHPC’s technical assistance approach supports system change and strives to improve the health status of local communities. We believe that communities benefit most from support that is:
- Systematic, but flexible
- Technical and adaptive
These principles and other attributes identified by GHPC associated with long-term viability of community-based health initiatives are unified in GHPC’s custom Sustainability Framework©, which guides technical assistance around the areas of strategic vision, collaboration, leadership, relevance and practicality, evaluation and return on investment, communication, efficiency and effectiveness, organizational capacity, and resource diversification.
