Community Health Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan
One of the statutory requirements of all local health departments is to complete a Community Health Assessment (CHA). Health departments use the CHA to inform the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP), which serves as a guide for future efforts to improve the health of a community. The CHIP is a collaborative effort between the health department and members of the community. The main goal of these plans is to work with the community to improve the county’s health in health focus areas identified by Monroe County residents.
The Monroe County Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) has been developed through the collaborative work of community partners to enhance the community’s health. The three main health focus areas identified in the CHIP are mental health, alcohol and other drug abuse, and nutrition.
