Affordable CareThe State of Maryland’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) launched a State Health Improvement Process (SHIP) on September 8, 2011. SHIP identifies 39 objectives to improve the health of Maryland residents across six vision areas: (1) Healthy Babies, (2) Healthy Social Environments, (3) Safe Physical Environments, (4) Infectious Disease, (5) Chronic Disease and (6)Health Care Access.

The Healthy Anne Arundel Coalition was formed in December 2011. The Coalition’s Steering Committee includes public sector providers, health care providers and payers, community-based partners, the business community and academic partners.

The purpose of the Coalition is to locally prioritize the SHIP’s objectives and to develop and implement actionable strategies to improve public health. Statistics for Anne Arundel County reflect that improvement is needed in the following areas: Obesity Prevention, Cancer Prevention, Substance Abuse Prevention, Mental Health, Access to Dental Care, Sexual Health, and Housing and the Environment. The Coalition Steering Committee is focusing on two health improvement priorities from 2012 to 2015.They are (1) obesity prevention and (2) the management of substance abuse and mental health as co-occurring disorders.
