The Greater Augusta Wellness Partnership (GAWP) was created by the membership of the Augusta Community Health Forum in 2016. The GAWP’s foundation rests upon the belief that creating a healthy community is possible through collective impact. The GAWP grew out of a desire to reinvigorate an existing networking group by recognizing the importance of the social determinants of health and their impact on physical, psychological and economic health.
The Greater Augusta Wellness Partnership officially began in January of 2017 with the acceptance and ratification of the Articles of Collaboration.
Mission Statement: The Greater Augusta Wellness Partnership is a catalyst for promoting collaborative, active partnerships to sustain a healthy community in the greater Augusta region.
Vision Statement: The Greater Augusta Region: a healthy, thriving, connected community.
The Greater Augusta Wellness Partnership is an organized, local collective of individuals and agencies moving toward a shared vision of Community wellness using common resources, a motivated membership and purposeful action. The first step in moving towards this common vision is the collection and analyzation of data to allow for the measuring of results around our shared plan for change. The following pages outline how this was accomplished.
