State Health Improvement Coalition 

The State Health Improvement Coalition was established as a subcommittee of the Public Health System Improvement Task Force for the purpose of drafting the five year updates to the State Health Assessment (SHA) and State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP). This subcommittee also reviews the State Health Improvement Plan's annual reports. The Coalition is made up of a diverse group of members from public health and health focused agencies throughout the State of Montana.
