Warren County’s Community Health Improvement Plan
Click here to see Warren County’s Community Health Improvement Plan.

The State of New Jersey required all counties to conduct a Community Health Assessment (CHA) and develop a corresponding Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). This CHIP presents goals for 2020, to coincide with the Healthy New Jersey 2020 Health Objectives.

This edition of the Warren County CHIP was developed in partnership with the Community Health Improvement Coalition (CHIC), a group of government agencies, local non-profit partners, and additional community stakeholders using the Mobilizing Action through Planning and Partnership (MAPP) process.

The 2014 Warren County CHIP is a data driven approach to determining the health status, behaviors, and needs of our resident population. The process to complete this health plan has involved input from a variety of community constituents, both public and private stakeholders, and residents of all ages. This report was based on a series of county-wide needs assessments conducted during the last 5 years including the 2010 Community Health Surveys I and II, the Forces of Change Assessment Survey, and analysis of secondary data collected by the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other research institutions.


The strategies identified in the plan will help WCHD and its CHIC partners address the major health challenges facing the residents of the county. WCHD looks forward to working on a variety of initiatives, including tobacco cessation programs, health screenings, healthier menus, and enhanced data collection to improve the overall health of our communities.
