Healthy People, Healthy Carolinas

Healthy People, Healthy Carolinas (HPHC), an initiative of The Duke Endowment launched in 2015, is a bold, community-based approach to addressing chronic health issues – such as unhealthy weight, diabetes and heart disease – through the work of local coalitions initiating evidence-based interventions to improve health. HPHC recognizes that health and well-being are created and sustained not just through individual and clinical efforts, but through the cooperation and support of the extended local community. Coalitions involve leaders from a wide spectrum of community organizations – health care, public health, social services, government, education, business and others – to engage residents in improving their health.

The NC Healthcare Foundation works with Population Health Improvement Partners to provide technical assistance and coaching to 9 coalitions across NC. An additional 10 coalitions are supported by SCHA in SC.
