Oregon PartnerSHIP to Develop the 2020-2024 SHIP

The purpose of Oregon’s State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP) is to identify population-wide priorities and strategies for improving the health of people in Oregon. The SHIP serves as the basis for taking collective action on key health issues in Oregon.

In preparation, the Public Health Division is convening the PartnerSHIP to inform and develop the 2020-2024 State Health Improvement Plan. The Public Health Division will use the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) framework, widely used by CCOs and local health departments.
