Williamson County Community Health Improvement Plan Released
The Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is a three-year collaborative plan that defines actions to target efforts that promote health in Williamson County. The plan guides the activities of our public health network and health coalition to address the most important issues facing the community.
The 2019 Community Health Assessment (CHA) identified the top five health priorities for the County. The Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD) and Healthy Williamson County (HWC) coalition partners worked together to address these priorities by formulating goals, objectives, and strategies to develop an action plan known as the CHIP.
Diverse coalition partners, such as healthcare, government, behavioral health, public health, schools, and non-profit agencies, worked together over the course of several months to develop CHIP goals, objectives, and strategies. This collective partnership recognizes that health starts in our homes, schools, and neighborhoods. The nonmedical factors that affect health, which range from affordable housing to accessible transportation, are known as “social determinants of health.”
The 2020-2022 CHIP includes 30 objectives that address the top five health priorities identified by the 2019 Williamson County CHA: Behavioral health/stress/ well-being, Chronic disease risk factors, Social determinants of health, Access and affordability of healthcare, and building a resilient Williamson County.
