Draft State Health Improvement Plan, Healthy Alaskans 2030

Request for Public Comments on the draft State Health Improvement Plan, Healthy Alaskans 2030

The Alaska State Health Improvement plan (SHIP), Healthy Alaskans 2030 (HA2030), co-led by the Alaska State Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) and the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) is the only SHIP in the nation that is led by a state/Tribal partnership. HA2030 brings together partners from many sectors across the state to improve health and ensure health equity for all Alaskans through shared understanding, united efforts, and collective accountability. The SHIP is currently transitioning from HA2020 to Healthy Alaskans 2030 (HA2030). Multiple Healthy Alaskans teams, workgroups, stakeholders and partners have actively engaged in the development of Healthy Alaskans 2030. HA2030 consists of 30 health objectives for Alaska, each with its own target for improvement to reach by 2030 with an overall vision of “Healthy Alaskans in Healthy Communities.” Learn more about Healthy Alaskans here.
