The Health Improvement Alliance and the Importance of Partnerships
The Health Improvement Alliance of St. Joseph County (HIA) is a consortium of public, non-profit and private health-related organizations whose goal is to make ours the healthiest county in Indiana. In the past decade, Alliance members have been part of every significant partnership to improve health, support and address health crises. Issues like infant and maternal mortality, smoking cessation and chronic disease prevention are longtime projects addressed by HIA partnerships. Our experiences demonstrate that are goals can only be achieved through the collaboration of public and private partnerships.
