Upcoming Meetings and Events
The Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) was developed by the Community Health Improvement Partnership (Partnership) following a comprehensive Community Health Assessment (CHA) process. The CHIP is a five-year plan to guide collective work of partners across agencies and disciplines that will help our community to move closer to the vision of the Partnership for Imperial County:
A community that supports and empowers all people to thrive and be healthy.
The Local Health Authority adopted the Community Health Assessment (CHA) and Community Health Improvement Planning processes as indicators of where to focus and align work through its own Strategic Plan. The current Community Health Assessment & Community Health Improvement Plan 2017-2021 (CHA/CHIP) is available on the Imperial County Public Health Department website. It is a living document, and thus, is revised as needed.
