  • State Health Assessment


  • The mission of the public health system is to promote health equity, prevent and protect againstdisease and injury and prepare for health emergencies. Toward the fulfillment of this mission, theIllinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is tasked with leading the State Health Assessment(SHA) process every five years. In 2021, an interim update1 of the 2016 SHA was published withsome updates on the previous SHA and preliminary data analysis for this SHA. or this SHA, the SHA/SHIP Partnership, formed by IdPH and the Office of the governor,mplemented a model assessment process using four different methods to hear from the community, identify forces of change, review secondary data on the health status of Illinoisans, and assess the health equity capacity of the public health system. This work built upon the last Healthy Illinois update, published in 2021, which included community and public health providernput, gathered through focus groups and surveys, and an analysis of local health department (LHd) assessments. The partnership synthesized the data and developed findings to inform the prior process. Through dozens of meetings in 2022 and 2023, the partnership honed in on five priority health areas with crosscutting issues that must be addressed for each issue.
