Community Health Assessment and Health Improvement Planning

MPHI provides state, local, and tribal public health agencies with training, consultation, evaluation, and support for completion of community health assessments (CHA) and community health improvement planning (CHIP). MPHI helps partners understand CHA/CHIP requirements, explore models, and develop plans. Staff also provide training and technical assistance to orient partners to models and phases of the process, and assist with identifying evidence-based strategies. MPHI enhances partners’ capacity in data collection, analysis, and interpretation, and provides documentation of communities’ CHA/CHIP processes.
