Welcome to the web site of the Comanche County Health Department. We hope that you use the information on this site to promote your personal health, the health of your family and the health of our community. 

 PHAB-SEAL-SM.jpgThe Comanche County Health Department is pleased to be among the first in the nation to receive newly established national public health department accreditation status through the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB).  The accreditation process helps to ensure that the programs and services we provide are as responsive as possible to the needs of our community.  With accreditation, the Comanche County Health Department is demonstrating increased accountability and credibility to the public, funders, elected officials and partner organizations with which we work.  To receive accreditation, a health department must undergo a rigorous, multi-faceted, peer-reviewed process to ensure it meets or exceeds a set of quality standards and measures.  For more information please follow this link:  PHAB

Our Vision is “Creating a State of Health”.  Our Mission is “To protect and promote health, to prevent disease and injury, and to cultivate conditions by which Oklahomans can be healthy.”   We do this by monitoring the health of our community, identifying and responding to health threats, providing timely and accurate information, enforcing laws that protect health and providing quality services to prevent and control disease.  

Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)
In the spring of 2010, Comanche County embarked on the development of its Community Health Improvement Plan or CHIP.  To facilitate an organized, comprehensive approach to creating the plan, organizers followed the nationally recognized “Mobilizing for Action toward Planning and Partnerships” (MAPP) process.  MAPP is a community-driven strategic planning tool for improving community health.  Facilitated by public health leaders, this tool helps communities apply strategic thinking to prioritize public health issues and identify resources to address them.  MAPP is not an agency-focused assessment tool; rather, it is an interactive process that can improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and ultimately the performance of local public health systems.  Through this process five areas of improvement were identified for 2010:

• Obesity
• Tobacco Use and Prevention
• Violence
• Sexual Health
• Poverty and Access to Care

Work groups were formed around each priority area and charged with the development of goals and strategies.  The Comanche County Health Improvement Plan is the culmination of that work.  

This process was repeated at the Community Health Meeting held on Wednesday, October 28, 2015.  Again five Comanche County Health Improvement Plan Priorities were chosen for 2015-2020 using the MAPP Framework Process.  This plan will guide community health improvement efforts for the next five years.  Groups and group leaders are in the process of being selected.  CHIP priorities for 2015:

• Mental Health
• Obesity
• Substance Abuse (Tobacco, Alcohol, and Other Drugs)
• Violence and Crime
• Poverty
