Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) Released


image of report cover. The Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) for San Mateo County has been created and the report is now available. The 2024-2026 CHIP outlines how San Mateo County Health and its partners plan to collaborate on enhancing health and promoting health equity. This plan is the result of a seven-month assessment and planning process involving over 90 partners, including representatives from divisions throughout San Mateo County Health, community-based organizations, behavioral health organizations, hospitals, health plans, and community advocates and leaders. The plan emphasizes joint efforts in three key priority areas:

  • Access to Health Care Services
  • Social Determinants of Health
  • Mental Health (Please note that strategies and objectives for this area are under development; an updated report will be issued once finalized)

This significant achievement represents San Mateo County’s inaugural CHIP, although partners have previously worked together on various assessments and plans that have guided our collaborative initiatives. Our goals for this process included:

  • To develop and improve engagement with community members to identify and guide health priorities
  • To establish a meaningful partnership with community partners for community-wide strategic planning and shared decision-making
  • To co-develop an actionable CHIP that will lead to improved health outcomes

These goals are being realized because of the dedication and commitment of our partners whose input in this process has been invaluable. We look forward to the continued collaboration that is required to implement our identified strategies and objectives for improving community health.

The report is available on the PHPP Strategic Direction webpage. If you are interested in joining the efforts of a CHIP Work Group, reach out to Jiana Riguera (
