Community Health Assessment (CHA) and Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)
In 2022, Marinette County Public Health partnered with Aurora Medical Center – Bay Area and Provident Health Foundation to conduct the first-ever collaborative, Community Health Assessment (CHA). A CHA refers to a state, tribal, local, or territorial health assessment that identifies key health needs and issues through systematic, comprehensive data collection and analysis. The CHA serves as the basis for the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP), which is a long-term, systematic effort to address public health problems based on the results of the CHA. The CHIP was completed at the beginning of 2023. The CHA and the CHIP are key pieces to the mission of Marinette County Public Health: protecting and promoting the health and well-being of people in Marinette County. Please see the reports and plans below.

Community Health Partnership
Workgroups were established in 2018 during our previous CHA/CHIP cycle to address the top three health priorities at that time which included: Alcohol and Other Drugs of Abuse (AODA), Mental Health, and Nutrition & Physical Activity. These workgroups are referred to as the Community Health Partnership because they are made up of community partners. The workgroups remain active and will continue to address these health priorities. Anyone who wants to make Marinette County a healthier place to live, learn, work, and play is encouraged to join! The 2023 workgroup meetings are listed below. Please contact us to learn more.
