Project Description

Healthy Baltimore 2015 is the Baltimore City Health Department’s comprehensive health policy agenda for the city, articulating its priority areas and indicators for action. This plan highlights areas where Baltimore can have the largest impact on reducing morbidity and mortality and improve the quality of life for city residents. The plan includes data that reflect the groups with the largest inequities by race, gender, education, or income to further highlight opportunities for addressing health inequities.

Practices Relevant to Community Health Assessment

Promising Practices (definitions):

  • Sustainability of Process
    Cross Agency Health Task Force: Healthy Baltimore's 2015 agenda for change acknowledges that a local public health department cannot successfully implement the plan working alone. The plan relies on the diverse partnerships of our neighborhoods, businesses, academic institutions, community-based organizations, non-profit agencies, medical institutions, foundations, and schools. Baltimore employs a "health in all policies" approach through its Cross Agency Health Task Force, a promising sustainability practice.
