The Work of the Health Improvement Plan of Washtenaw County

Partnerships, Data, and Strategies

Beginning in 1995, the Washtenaw County Public Health Department has led a countywide partnership called the Health Improvement Plan (HIP). Our purpose is to improve health in Washtenaw County by facilitating partnerships, providing information, and developing strategies.

The partnership has included health systems, community agencies, coalitions, government, universities, and county residents. New partners are welcome! 

All HIP Partners and the general community are welcome to our quarterly Community Health Committee. Leadership for HIP is provided by the HIP Coordinating and Implementation Teams.

HIP staff supports its community partners by:

  • Monitoring health-related data and prioritizing critical health issues

  • Sharing health improvement strategies proven to succeed

  • Encouraging organizational collaboration

  • Identifying available resources

Partners are encouraged to apply HIP information by developing health improvement strategies consistent with their organization's mission.
