Oregon Health Authority, working with more than 100 community partners, is launching the 2020-2024 State Health Improvement Plan as a tool for Oregon’s recovery from COVID-19. The plan outlines strategies needed to address disparities made worse by the health crisis.
The prioritized disparities include:
- Institutional bias
- Adversity, trauma and toxic stress
- Behavioral health
- Equitable access to preventive care
- Key economic drivers of public health such as housing, transportation and providing a living wage
The COVID-19 pandemic has worsened the short- and long-term trajectory in each of these five priority areas, making implementation of the plan even more critical. OHA remains on track to launch the 2020-2024 SHIP this August.
The public is invited to help inform strategies through online surveys in English and Spanish or by providing written feedback. More information about the 2020-2024 State Health Improvement Plan can be found here.
