Our community is working together to improve health and quality of life in Lane County.
A Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is an action-oriented plan that outlines the community health issues based on CHNA findings. The community and partners work together to identify how issues will be addressed and how to measure progress. This plan is used by health and other governmental education and human service agencies, in collaboration with community partners, to set priorities and coordinate and target resources. Ultimately, the long-term goal is to improve the community’s health.
2016 -2019 Community Health Improvement Plan
Lane County Public Health, United Way of Lane County, PeaceHealth, and Trillium are currently conducting the 2015 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) which will inform the 2016-2019 Community Health Improvement Plan.
2013 -2016 Community Health Improvement Plan
Lane County’s 2013-2016 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP), based off the findings from the 2012 Community Health Assessment, is a framework for developing and implementing short and long term strategies to focus the attention and work of policy makers, nonprofits, business leaders and community members over three years.
- Advance and Improve Health Equity
- Improve Access to Health Care
- Prevent and Reduce Tobacco Use
- Slow the Increase of Obesity
- Prevent and Reduce Substance Abuse and Mental Illness
Even though there has been decades of progress in reducing disease and early death, these are complex challenges that impact our community far beyond health care. There are education and economic implications for poor health; addressing these issues successfully requires resources, effort, innovations and most importantly, participation from everyone.
