Maricopa County Community Health Assessment

The Maricopa County Community Health Improvement Process launched in June 2011 to align and support the National Prevention Strategy, the Arizona Chronic Disease Strategic Plan as well as existing community health improvement initiatives across the County. The 2012-2017 CHIP Framework and Workplan includes more than 90 objectives targeting community health improvement in five priority areas uncovered during an extensive Community Health Assessment process. They are:

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Lung Cancer
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Access to Care

The goal of the Maricopa County CHIP is to provide a framework for accountability, community action, and stakeholder engagement to advance the health of all Maricopa County residents. The indicators below show how Maricopa County is measuring up to our desired community health outcomes.
