Community Health Improvement Plan

| March 8, 2014

Working together to create a caring community where all people can live a healthier life.

 A Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is an action-oriented plan that identifies goals, strategies, activities and resources to address key health issues identified by the Community Health Needs Assessment findings. In collaboration with community partners, this plan is used by Lane County, United Way, PeaceHealth, and Trillium to focus efforts and resources on the most important issues to achieve the greatest impact on health.

2016 -2019 Community Health Improvement Plan

The 2016-2019 Lane County Regional Community Health Improvement Plan will focus on achieving two goals and will be released Summer 2016.
Increase economic and social opportunities that promote healthy behaviors.
Social and economic opportunities create a better life: high quality education, secure jobs with good wages, and housing that is both safe and affordable. These support a strong community and healthy people.
Increase healthy behaviors to improve health and well-being.
Healthy actions and choices lead to good health.  To create good health, we must make the healthy choice the easy choice.  We can support individuals and the community to take positive actions that support a lifetime of healthy living.

Even though there has been decades of progress made in certain areas, these are complex challenges that impact our community. Addressing these issues successfully requires resources, effort, innovations and most importantly, participation from everyone.
