Pursuant to Public Act 93-0975, Illinois is required to produce a State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP) every four years. SHIP must include priorities and strategies for health status and public health system improvement in Illinois, with a focus on prevention. It also must address reducing racial, ethnic, geographic, age and socioeconomic health disparities. The plan is produced by a team of public, private and voluntary sector stakeholders appointed by the Director of the Illinois Department of Public Health.
The ILAACP was appointed by the Director for the Illinois Department of Public Health to serve on the 2010 State Health Improvement Plan Planning Team. The ILAACP’s participation on this team was critical to ensuring that the planning process satisfied its statutory mandate of addressing racial and socioeconomic health disparities.
