Objective Public participation in different projects is one of the most important strategies for development. Community health assessment is a process by which community members gain an understanding of the health concerns and the health care system by identifying, collecting, and disseminating information on the community’s strengths, resources, and needs. This study aims to identify and prioritize the problems of Cholicheh county in Farsan city, Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Province, Iran.
Methods This study was conducted in 8 stages based on the North Carolina Community Health Assessment Model in the winter of 2021; the first seven stages include identifying and prioritizing the problems, and the eighth stage includes developing an action plan to solve priority problems. After establishing the assessment team, primary and secondary data were collected.
Results A total of 42 problems were identified, which were classified into six different groups, including health, education and culture, economics and employment, social and civil rights, security, and urban services. Using the nominal group technique, the priority problems were drinking water pollution, economic problems and unemployment, and low knowledge of health issues
Conclusion The problems in Cholicheh county are related to cultural, social, and economic areas, in addition to the health area. To solve these problems, cross-sectoral collaboration, support from managers and officials, and public participation are needed.
