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!
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.
