About the Local Health Improvement Process

Howard County’s Local Health Improvement Coalition ("LHIC") includes 50 actively engaged and dedicated stakeholders from across Howard County representing a variety of key agencies, organizations, and communities affected by health disparities. Upon first convening in December 2011, the LHIC took immediate steps toward setting and achieving its vision.The LHIC began its work to improve health equity in the Howard County community by undertaking a transparent, inclusive local health improvement process that continuously engages diverse stakeholders, provides a more clear understanding of the prevalence and causes of local health disparities, and uses a 2-year action plan aligned with the State Health Improvement Process (SHIP) as the framework for improving local health outcomes. The LHIC submitted its 2012-2014 Local Health Improvement Action Plan to the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene on March 1, 2012. With continued support and technical assistance from the Howard County Health Department, the LHIC will track and evaluate the implementation of the 2012-2014 Local Health Improvement Action Plan. The LHIC is committed to working within the County over the long term as it recognizes that achieving health equity will take time and perseverance.
