Health Improvement Plan (HIP)


The Community Health Improvement plan is a long-term, collaborative effort to address public health issues based on the results of assessment activities (CHNA). This plan focuses on the underlying causes of health concerns in the community and a structured plan to address the health concern. The HIP then identifies 17 specific health priorities that align with these public health issues.
