A Healthier Montana

This is the main website for the work done by the State Health Improvement Coalition, which is a group of stakeholders from 24 public health and health care organizations across the state. This group develops an updated State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP) every five years. The Coalition is a workgroup of the Public Health System Improvement Task Force.

Additional Statewide Health Plans

These plans are not maintained by the State Health Improvement Coalition, but do address health-related needs in Montana and were developed in partnership with Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services staff. They are listed here as a resource for people interested in learning more about how statewide collaborations and coalitions are addressing topics that impact the health of Montanans.

If you are aware of other statewide plans to address health needs that you would like to see included here, please reach out to Anna Bradley at abradley@mt.gov.
