2013 - 2018 Community Health Improvement and Assessment Plan 2018-2023 Community Health Improvement Plan A community health improvement plan (CHIP) is a long-term, systematic effort to address public health problems based on the results of community health assessment activities and the community health improvement process. Wisconsin State Statutes requires each local health department to complete a community health assessment and develop a community health improvement plan every five years. We are excited to release our 2018-2023 community health improvement plan (see above).
During the process, three health priorities were identified with the input of community members: alcohol and other drugs of abuse (AODA), mental health, and nutrition and physical activity. Workgroups have been established to address these health priorities and are meeting regularly. The community health improvement plan serves as a call to action for community members and organizations to engage in community health improvement efforts. The plan was created using community input throughout the entire process and should continue in the action phase.
The next steps for our community is to plan and implement the strategies that are outlined in the plan. In order to create successful health outcomes, we need the help of community members across all sectors. Please get involved to help make Marinette County the healthiest place to live, work, learn, and play!
