Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)
is a community-level plan that aims to improve the health of individuals, families and the community as a whole.
The CHIP is informed by the community, and is focused on making meaningful changes across many sectors through the collective efforts of multiple organizations. It is intended to address significant issues that influence overall health in Curry County, Oregon.
The CHIP is based on data reviewed, collected and analyzed from the 2018 Community Health Assessment (CHA) and meets the mandates of several participating organizations.
Community members and partners have formed a coalition to address the focus areas and priorities from the CHA and CHIP.
