The Health Impact Collaborative of Cook County is a partnership between the Illinois Public Health Institute, hospitals, health departments and community organizations across Chicago and Cook County. This collaborative initiative will engage these entities in conducting collaborative Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), action planning and implementation activities across three Cook County regions – South, Central and North.
This initiative is one of the largest collaborative CHNAs in the country with the current involvement of 26 nonprofit and public hospitals, along with seven local health departments and representatives of more than 100 community organizations serving on three stakeholder advisory teams.
Through the Health Impact Collaborative of Cook County, partners are coming together with the goal of working together on strategies to address the pressing issues in our communities to achieve greater collective impact.
