The Community Health Improvement Plan and Process (CHIPP) is a mechanism to assess and determine the priority health needs of Waukesha County residents. In a CHIPP, "health" is defined broadly and includes physical health, mental health, environmental health and other areas that contribute to overall well-being.
The purpose of the CHIPP is to review and assess health needs from a variety of data sources and determine strengths and weaknesses. A plan is then developed to recommend strong programs in areas of need. Once a plan is developed, it is implemented and evaluated. In Wisconsin, the entire CHIPP generally spans a five year period to give enough time to observe community health improvements.
The Waukesha County CHIPP Steering Committee will provide essential leadership over the course of these five years, with a request to individual members to commit to at least two years and the opportunity to continue annually after that time.
Vision for a healthy Waukesha County is:
Strong families, connected communities, healthy environment and accessible services that promote overall safety, well-being and quality of life.
