In this report, the University of Alabama team recounts how they conducted a communitywide needs assessment of community health infrastructure in the state’s Black Belt counties as the first step in mobilizing a community health coalition well suited to serving rural populations, which are often overlooked. Other jurisdictions wanting to establish a baseline of their community health sector are invited to adapt and apply the CommuniHealth Alabama team’s tools and templates.
