Healthy Pima

Healthy Pima, formally known as Pima County Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is a vision of how the Community Health ACTION Task force (CHAT) and their partners want to address four health priorities currently facing Pima County. The four health priorities are: Healthy Lifestyles, Health Literacy, Access to Care, and Heath Disparities. CHAT members established these priorities by using secondary data analysis, surveys, and group discussions. They first envisioned this plan in 2010 and have been working on it since. This dynamic plan is a collaborative effort of all of following groups: the Health Department, health care and community service providers, businesses, government, and educators. They will hopefully improve community health over the next several years.
