The development of the Arizona State Health Improvement Plan (AzHIP), Healthy People, Healthy Communities, is the result of the diligent work of numerous public health professionals, advocates and community stakeholders at the state, county and community levels. The AzHIP is a plan for the entire public health system. Stakeholders include state and local government, healthcare providers and health plans, employers, community groups, schools, universities, and many more. The AzHIP provides a structure and a venue to bring together a loosely networked system of partners to align resources and efforts to improve the health of communities and individuals across Arizona. This is the Arizona health agenda.
