State Health Assessment & Improvement Plan

The Indiana State Department of Health worked with several agencies and organizations throughout 2017 and 2018 to develop of the Indiana State Health Assessment and Improvement Plan (IN-SHA/SHIP).  In conjunction with partners from across the state, ISDH gathered epidemiological data and key informant interviews to paint a picture of the health of Indiana’s residents.  This data informed the development of the State Health Improvement Plan, which provides strategies and objectives for improving Indiana’s health over the next three-and-a-half years.
