Mission Statement: To unite the Utah Public Health System and improve the health of the people of Utah

The purpose of the Utah Health Improvement Plan (UHIP) is to promote collaboration and coordination among Utah's public health system partners to improve the health of all who live and work in our beautiful state. The UHIP will be a road map to guide collective efforts focused on key priorities and outcomes that, when achieved, will result in a healthier Utah for all. It should promote alignment of individual agency and partner strategic plans and initiatives toward common goals for the health of the people of Utah.
