Rural Health Action Plan (RHAP)
Fifteen recommendations and 50+ action steps to address the social determinants of health in our rural communities
In 2017, the South Carolina Office of Rural Health led the development of the SC Rural Health Action Plan, a broad roadmap for improving the health status of our rural communities. This effort included input from community leaders across multiple sectors and resulted in 15 recommendations and 50+ action steps to guide collaborations between the health, housing, educational and employment sectors. In 2019, SCORH launched RuralForwardSC to put the Rural Health Action Plan into motion.
