    Healthy Pima LogoHealthy Pima is Pima County’s community health task force of individuals, public, community, and business organizations that have joined forces to improve community health by mobilizing resources, increasing awareness, promoting change, and taking collective action.

    Members of Healthy Pima are representatives of healthcare, behavioral health, government agencies, not-for-profit organizations, faith-based services, education, employers, unions, tribal nations, and philanthropy and have worked together to improve the health status of the Pima County community since 2010.

    Every three years, a Community Health Needs Assessment is conducted to identify the county’s priority health issues. The assessment utilizes health data, such as mortality and disease rates, coupled with direct input from hundreds of community members and leaders to prioritize the county’s most pressing health issues that become the focus of health planning efforts. The county’s current priority health issues include: 
    • Accidents and Injuries
    • Anxiety and Depression Spectrum Disorders
    • Diabetes
    • Substance Misuse
    mTo address these priority health issues, Healthy Pima has formed task forces and coalitions that work diligently to formulate action plans with goals, strategies, and objectives that outline how each group will collaboratively focus efforts and resources. Collectively, these actions plans are used as the foundation for the county’s three year Community Health Improvement Plan.

    As a living document, the Community Health Improvement Plan is flexible and can accommodate changes and updates as needed. The plan is reassessed and updated annually to best address the health needs of the community.
