Strategic Plan

Our strategic plan sets forth principles and work to guide Department of Health employees. The role of public health in Washington continues to change and we must change with it. This plan lays out transformations we must make to support our bold vision of equity and optimal health for all.

It focuses leadership intention on the following transformational areas:

  • Outward mindset
  • Funding
  • Data, information, and technology innovations
  • Equity, diversity, and inclusion

While the plan sets out long-range transformation in these areas, it also focuses on 15 distinct strategies to be implemented in the first 12–24 months. As these strategies are completed, new strategies will be developed to continue advancing our transformation journey.
