DPH: State Health Improvement Planning Coalition

 The Connecticut Health Improvement Planning Coalition

Health is the product of many factors, some of which are outside the traditional purview of public health and health care. These factors include social and physical environmental conditions arising from or affected by policies and activities in sectors that are not usually considered health-related. Examples of these determinants of health are agriculture, transportation, recreation, housing, and public safety. 


The Connecticut Health Improvement Planning Coalition is a diverse partnership of local, regional, and statewide organizations and agencies that address public health from a variety of traditional and non-traditional perspectives.


The Coalition was established in January, 2013 to collaborate with DPH in developing a comprehensive Health Improvement Plan for Connecticut residents, based largely on the results of the Connecticut State Health Assessment. Work Groups consisting of representatives from the Coalition's member organizations and other interested individuals forged goals, objectives, and evidence-based strategies for each of the Plan's seven focus areas, and an Advisory Council made recommendations to DPH on various developmental stages of the Plan.
