The Howard County Local Health Improvement Coalition was formed in 2011 as part of the Maryland Department of Health’s State Health Improvement Process.  The coalition’s mission is to identify and reduce health disparities and achieve health equity among Howard County residents. Using local health data and input from stakeholders from throughout the County, the coalition develops Strategic Action Plans, setting aims, goals and process objectives for four key priority areas – Access to Care, Behavioral Health, Healthy Aging and Healthy Weight. Work groups are maintained to implement and monitor progress in each area of the plan.
