The Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria is a citizen-led coalition of non-profit organizations, schools, municipal agencies, local businesses, government, community leaders, and concerned citizens who come together to promote and preserve a healthy Alexandria.
The Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria emerged in 2006 to address major health priorities that were identified from the first Community Health Assessment in Alexandria. This assessment was a collaborative project conducted by the Alexandria Health Department, along with the Alexandria Public Health Advisory Commission and other community partners. Today, these three entities work closely to address and provide action-oriented, evidence-based solutions to public health concerns in the City of Alexandria.
Efforts of the Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria are primarily completed by its four work-groups:
- Alexandria Coalition for Clean & Smoke Free Air
- Mental Health Anti-Stigma HOPE Campaign
- Childhood Obesity Action Network (A-COAN)
- Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition of Alexandria (SAPCA)
