Community health improvement plan
Jump to navigation Jump to search
- A long-term, systematic effort to address health problems on the basis of the results of assessment activities and the community health improve- ment process. 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. A HIP is critical for developing policies and defining actions to target efforts that promote health. It should define the vision for the health of the community inclusively and should be done in a timely way. (Adapted from: United States Department of Health and Human Services. Healthy People 2010.
