About Us

The Center for Community Health Alignment (CCHA) is a community focused organization within the UofSC Arnold School of Public Health. Our network of partners work alongside community leaders to align efforts addressing health inequities in South Carolina by bringing together three major initiatives: PASOs, the Community Health Worker Institute (CHWI), and Equity through Meaningful Community Engagement (EMCE).

Collectively the work these entities do in communities statewide helps connect individuals with improved access and awareness about the resources and services available for varying medical, behavioral health and social service needs across various populations.

CCHA’s work helps drive greater utilization of the available health resources, reduces barriers to critical services and expands community resources, helping build more resilient communities.

For too long, the perspectives of individuals who are most impacted by health inequities have been missing from conversations about their own health and well-being. The most lasting health solutions are produced through the alignment of services and resources. CCHA provides support to organizations and communities in pursuit of improved health and increased equity.
