San Francisco's Community Health Improvement Plan
As a result of a comprehensive community health assessment, the San Francisco Department of Public Health and its community partners have created the San Francisco Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). San Francisco's CHIP is a 3 to 5 year action-oriented plan outlining three priority health issues for the city:
- Ensure Safe + Healthy Living Environments
- Increase Healthy Eating + Physical Activity
- Increase Access to High Quality Health Care + Services
The CHIP includes goals and objectives for each priority, as well as strategies and measures to improve community health.
