Community Health Assessment (CHA) and Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)

 Community Health Assessment (CHA) and Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)
 
In 2022, MCPH partnered with Aurora Medical Center – Bay Area and Provident Health Foundation to conduct the first ever collaborative, wommunity-wide Community Health Assessment (CHA) in Marinette County.
A CHA refers to a state, tribal, local, or territorial health assessment that identifies key health needs and issues through systematic, comprehensive data collection and analysis. The CHA serves as the basis for the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP), which is a long-term, systematic effort to address public health problems based on the results of the CHA. The CHA and CHIP are key pieces to the mission of Marinette County Public Health (MCPH): protecting and promoting the health and well-being of people in Marinette County.
 
Marinette County Public Health would like to thank Aurora Medical Center – Bay Area and Provident Health Foundation for their partnership, technical assistance, financial contributions, and support throughout this collaborative effort. Also, thank you to all of the community members and organizations that were involved with the CHA process. This community assessment would not be possible without your valuable input.  Please continue to share additional feedback with us at any time. We look forward to continued collaboration as we move from the assessment phase to the implementation phase to improve the health and well-being of Marinette County residents as we continue towards our vision of “everyone living their best life.”
 
The next step after completing the CHA is to develop the CHIP. The goal is to have the CHIP completed by the end of the first quarter in 2023. MCPH, along with community partners, will strive to complete the strategies outlined in the CHIP over the next three years until the CHA/CHIP cycle is repeated once again.
 
 
Community Health Partnership
 
Workgroups were established in 2018 during our previous CHA/CHIP cycle to address the top three health priorities at that time which included: Alcohol and Other Drugs of Abuse (AODA), Mental Health, and Nutrition & Physical Activity. These workgroups are referred to as the Community Health Partnership because they are made up of community partners. The workgroups remain active and will continue to address these health priorities. Anyone who wants to make Marinette County a healthier place to live, learn, work, and play is encouraged to join!
