Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) - 2010-2015 Information

During the spring of 2010, the Comanche County Health Department engaged community partners in an effort to assess the health status of county residents. Using the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) model, organizers gathered information for 4 assessment categories including Community Health Status, Community Themes and Strengths, Local Public Health System, and Forces of Change. Using these broad assessment categories provides for a comprehensive view of the current health outcomes, as well as the factors, both real and perceived, that influence this community’s health.  After reviewing the assessment data in the spring of 2011, eleven elements were identified for closer review and discussion. It was among these eleven elements that the priority areas for improvement were selected. They included:

  • Alcohol Use
  • Poverty/Access to Care
  • Sexual health
  • Obesity
  • Child Health
  • Tobacco
  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Mental Health
  • Violence

The 2010 Comanche County Health Assessment discusses these elements and the factors that resulted in their consideration for targeted health improvement.

Through this process five areas of improvement were identified for 2010:

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