Background: Oregon’s State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP) identifies interventions and strategies to address health-related priorities in the state. The SHIP serves as a basis for taking collective action with cross-sector partners to improve heath in Oregon. The SHIP will be based on findings from the State Health Assessment (SHA).

  • Health departments are required to develop and implement a health improvement plan at least once every five years.
  • The Public Health Division will use the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) framework, widely used by coordinated care organizations (CCOs) and local health departments. The MAPP framework uses six phases. The SHA is developed over the first three phases, while the SHIP is developed and implemented over the second three phases.
  • Information about the PartnerSHIP can be found on the OHA website.
  • The current State Health Improvement Plan, which is in effect through December 2019, identifies seven priorities related to tobacco use, obesity, oral health, immunizations, suicide, communicable disease, and substance use.
