Public health professionals can use the SHA/SHIP to determine which issues are of greatest concern to the health of Mississippians. The SHIP helps groups and individuals from multiple sectors to work on a common set of issues in order to improve the health of Mississippians.
Public health professionals can benefit from multiple parts of the full report. Pay special attention to the four MAPP assessments, which provide an examination of the health issues affecting Mississippians from four different perspectives.
Individuals and organizations who would like to become involved in the work of the SHIP can contact Angie Gainey. If you are doing work around one of the four priority areas, feel free to share any successes you are having. Even if you haven’t been part of the SHIP process, we want to help promote the good work that is happening across Mississippi.
