Public Input Sought for Oklahoma Children’s Health Plan

The Oklahoma Health Improvement Planning Team and Children’s Health Panel are seeking comments from the public regarding its draft Oklahoma Children’s Health Plan:  Keeping Kids Healthy, a document that provides a blueprint for improving the health status of Oklahoma’s children. The comment period is open from now until November 26, 2010. Following the comment period, the Oklahoma Health Improvement Planning Team will review the plan, including any additions or revisions resulting from public comment.

The plan provides a comprehensive strategy to improve health outcomes for children ages 1 to 18 years by addressing the following areas of concern:  access to primary care, injury prevention, immunization, oral health, adolescent health, mental health and substance abuse, child abuse and neglect, and children with special health care needs.  The plan also addresses child health policy, health inequities for children, youth development opportunities, and services for youth and families. 

A copy of the draft Oklahoma Children’s Health Plan, and instructions for commenting on the plan, may be viewed by visiting the Oklahoma State Department of Health’s Web site at www.health.ok.gov .
