Managing for Excellence Program
State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP)
The Managing for Excellence Program (MEP) is preparing to conduct a State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP) which is one of the three PHAB accreditation prerequisites. The purpose of the SHIP is to utilize the results of the State Community Health Assessment (CHA) to create a plan designed to improve the health of Arizonans. The planning and implementation process is community-driven and can be used to set public health priorities, direct the use of resources, and develop and implement projects and programs.
