Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)

Community Health Improvement Plan


After public health priorities are identified by the community as a result of completing a community health assessment, a community health improvement plan is developed. The community health improvement plan designates which organizations in the community ae responsible for implementing strategies related to each public health priority and what the community’s goals are for each of these areas. Involving many community partner organizations is crucial to ensuring true changes are made and sustained. It truly does take an entire community working together to make a lasting impact.


During 2017 the Pueblo City-County Health Department will again work with community partners and members to create a community health improvement plan to address the 2018-2022 priorities of

  • obesity
  • substance abuse
