Cross Agency Health Improvement Project (CAHIP)

A unique partnership between Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and Department of Human Services (DHS)

Cross Agency Health Improvement Project logoStaff across both agencies are working together to improve the health of our clients, consumers and employees. CAHIP steering committee membership represents the highest levels of leadership in OHA and DHS.

CAHIP's goal is to help OHA and DHS clients, consumers and employees take care of themselves and take charge of their health. Policies supported or implemented by CAHIP ensure culturally and linguistically appropriate practices and encourage:

  • Worksite wellness;
  • Tobacco-free living; and
  • Improved nutrition and physical activity.

CAHIP staff are also working with county and tribal public health departments and Regional Health Equity Coalitions to encourage relationship building with local state agency offices to support these goals.

Contact CAHIP staff with questions or to get involved.

The Public Health Division’s Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Section staffs and facilitates the work of CAHIP.
