GDPH State Health Improvement Plan, 2016–2021
Georgia Department of Health State Health Improvement Plan, 2016-2021
The SHIP is an action-oriented plan that outlines the key health priority areas for the state, and how these priority areas will be addressed to ultimately improve the health of all people in Georgia. The SHIP was created through a statewide, collaborative planning process that engages partners and organizations to develop, support and implement the plan. This development process enables loosely-networked system partners to coordinate for more efficient, targeted and integrated health improvement efforts. The SHIP serves as a vision for health and a framework for organizations to use
in leveraging resources, engaging partners, and identifying priorities and strategies for collective action toward improving community health and achieving health equity.
