Phase VI: Develop a local public health improvement plan

To develop a five-year local public health improvement plan (PHIP), also referred to as a community health improvement plan (CHIP), based on the results of assessment activities and the selection of priority focus areas. The PHIP will become the road map for community and regional partners to make improvements to the public health system and ultimately the population’s health. The plan is critical for developing policies and defining actions to target efforts that promote health. Government agencies, including those related to health and the environment, human services and education, will use the public health improvement plan in collaboration with community partners to set priorities and coordinate and target resources.
