Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIPs)
Unlocking the potential of CHIPs to advance health equity in New York State
County-specific community health improvement plans (CHIPs) are a key driver of New York state’s long-term, systematic effort to improve the health and well-being of all New Yorkers and to promote health equity in all populations who experience disparities. Within counties, these plans are used to set priorities and direct resources, but may be under-utilized for activating cross-county initiatives to advance health equity.
This team is overseeing an analysis of all NYS CHIPs to highlight common evidence-based interventions that address health inequities and that remain or have become a priority given the pandemic. By doing so, the project is unlocking the potential of diverse stakeholders to identify, fund and implement these interventions in their localities through both cross-county and cross-campus collaborative partnerships.
