IPHI has aligned its 2009-2014 strategic plan with Illinois’ State Health Improvement Plan, by focusing on the following four strategic goals:
Measure, manage and improve the public health system
IPHI works to ensure a more highly functioning public health system comprised of active public, private, and voluntary partners engaged in measuring, managing and improving the public health system by assuring accountability, ongoing improvement, and performance management in public health.
Preventing Obesity: Nutrition & Physical Activity
IPHI works to reduce obesity through policy, systems and environmental changes impacting nutrition and physical activity in a variety of settings. Our goal is to ensure that by 2014, trends in obesity and overweight will have stabilized in Illinois. By 2018, the trends will be moving downward.
Data & IT
In order to assure that public health policy and programs are driven by data, IPHI works to ensure that Illinois’ data systems measure, analyze and report on the health status of Illinois residents, including those impacted by health disparities.
IPHI works to ensure that the public health system is being actively engaged in addressing health disparities and the social determinants that affect health outcomes across the lifespan.
