Alexandria Community Health Improvement Plan, 2014-2019
To continue to address our community’s public health needs, the Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria, in collaboration with the Alexandria Health Department and other community partners, has developed the 2014 - 2019 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). The CHIP aligns with the City of Alexandria’s strategic goals as well as the goals of other relevant city plans and provide a framework to achieve optimal community health and well-being for all Alexandrians. The CHIP aims to create opportunities for all Alexandrians to live long, healthy lives, regardless of their income, education, race, ethnic background, or where they live in Alexandria.
Extensive work went into the development of the CHIP. This work included community outreach, and local public health data analysis. Additionally, the Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria utilized the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) process that was developed by the CDC and endorsed by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) in order to guide the community through a series of conversations. These conversations were designed to:
- Provide a description of health outcomes in Alexandria and how well the City’s public health system coordinates to support a healthier community
- Outline key forces that impact health
- Identify key health priorities
