Learn which issues are of greatest concern to the health of Mississippians, and link your efforts with existing work.
The State Health Improvement Plan (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 use the State Health Assessment (SHA) or SHIP to determine which issues are of greatest concern to the health of Mississippians. You can read a summary of the SHA/SHIP report, or in full here.
Check out the four assessment tools from the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) process, which provide an examination of the health issues affecting Mississippians.
Share successes you are having in existing work of the four priority areas. Even if you haven’t been part of the SHIP process, we want to help promote the good work that is happening across Mississippi.
