Community Health Improvement Plans
According to the Centers for Disease Control, "A community health improvement plan (or 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. A plan is typically updated every three to five years."
There are many processes used to develop these plans. The most common process is the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP). TRPHD used this process to create the 2012 Two Rivers Public Health Department Community Health Improvement Plan. For our most recent plan, we used an innovative new process that combined community health assessment, strategic planning, and community health improvement planning.
TRPHD will begin a new Community Health Assessment process in late 2019 and plans to have a new Community Health Improvement Plan in 2020.
This community health improvement plan is provided for your input! We hope to hear from you. If you would like to send comments or concerns, please contact us.
Proposed 2019 TRPHD Community Health Improvement Plan
As mentioned above, this community health improvement plan was created through the MAPP process and released during 2012.
