The Maryland Department of Health launched a State Health Improvement Process (SHIP) in September 2011. SHIP identified objectives to improve the health of Maryland residents across five vision areas: (1) Healthy Beginnings, (2) Healthy Living, (3) Healthy Communities, (4) Access to Health Care and (5) Quality Preventive Care. SHIP health improvement measures were aligned with the national Healthy People 2020 objectives established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The SHIP provided a framework for local action and public engagement by calling for the establishment and long-term sustainability of local health improvement coalitions throughout Maryland. Under SHIP’s umbrella, the Healthy Anne Arundel Coalition, managed by the County Department of Health, was formed in December 2011.


The purpose of the Healthy Anne Arundel Coalition is to develop and implement actionable strategies to improve public health in Anne Arundel County.

Vision: Healthy County, Healthy People
Mission: Working together as a community to promote the health and wellness of Anne Arundel County residents
