What is Healthy Iowans?
Healthy Iowans is a collaborative process that sets the agenda for solving the top health issues facing Iowans so they can live longer, healthier, more productive lives and enjoy our rich quality of life. It has two major parts.
- The state health assessment (SHA) involves public and private partners as well as people from across Iowa in identifying Iowa’s top health issues.
- The state health improvement plan (SHIP) engages partners in planning to address Iowa’s top health issues. Since the 1990s, Healthy Iowans has included a set of measurable goals with objectives and action steps.
