A healthy community is where people can be as healthy as possible in a safe and nurturing environment. As Washingtonians, we must work together to address the physical, environmental, social, and emotional factors that contribute to chronic disease. With the development of the Washington State Plan for Healthy Communities (PDF) we are now better able to address the common underlying issues related to maintaining health.
We welcome you to explore the plan through an interactive infographic:
This statewide plan for building healthy communities will align our priorities and strategies with national, state, and local prevention efforts. It will be a road-map for promoting health across the lifespan. Using the collective impact approach we aim to improve systems, policies, and environments. Our goal is to increase the number of people in Washington who are healthy at every stage of life where they live, learn, work, and play.
