SHIP: The Statewide Health Improvement Program
The goal of the Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP) funding is to help Minnesotans live longer, healthier, better lives by preventing risk factors that lead to chronic disease. SHIP is an integral component of an overall health care reform initiative passed during the 2008 Legislative session. Minnesota’s health reforms aim to simultaneously improve the health of Minnesotans, enhance the patient experience and contain the spiraling costs of health care in our state.
The Healthy Communities Collaborative has been working for the past 4 1/2 years to help create good health where residents, live, work, learn and play. We are working on making the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice!
The work we are doing through SHIP improves health and saves money by building stronger communities.
