SHIP Partners and Partnering A Local Health Improvement Partnership (LHIP) or Community-Based Health Improvement Partnership is: A collaboration of public, private, and voluntary organizations and individuals, who serve a defined geographic area, and exists for the purpose of improving the health status of the community.
Healthy Communities SHIP defines a community as: “all persons and organizations within a geographic area in which there is a sense of interdependence, identity, and belonging.”
Healthy Communities • Partnerships should focus on local health needs and the needs of the community they serve. • Organizations alone cannot decide what the community needs are. • Community members should be included in the process.
Our Common Vision • Prevention • We share a commitment to: • Prevent death and disability through mobilizing community action to identify and address root causes • Recognize that prevention is the keystone of community health • When possible, relate our prevention activities to the achievement of HP 2010 objectives Prevention

Health Disparities SHIP 2006-2010 expands the analyses of health disparities beyond rural and minority health disparities that were covered in previous SHIP reports. To Access These Publications Visit: www.health.state.pa.us/ship
Health Disparities “A disproportionate health burden for a segment of the population, compared to the total population or a target population.” Reference: Chapter 6 Eliminating Health Disparities
Health Disparities Health Disparities are differences in health status, the delivery of health services, and the utilization of health services.
Health Disparities Highlighted in SHIP 2006-2010: • Gender • Race/Ethnicity • Education/Income • Disability • Geographic location • Sexual orientation
SHIP 2006-2010 The plan uses several sources to identify health disparities in PA residents: • Data from the PA Healthy People 2010 Dataset • Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System • Other Sources (Footnoted)
Gender – Men have higher age-adjusted death rates for 9 of the 10 leading causes of death. Race/Ethnicity – The 2003 age-adjusted death rate for HIV/AIDS among black residents was almost 15 times higher than for whites. Examples of Disparities in PA • Education/Income – 35 percent of adults with less than a high school education have no healthcare coverage compared to 7 percent of those with a college degree.
Disability – People with disabilities report more anxiety, pain, and depression than those without. Geographic Location – Many rural counties had 2000-2002 age-adjusted death rates for heart disease that were much higher than the state rate. Examples of Disparities in PA • Sexual orientation – Gay, male adolescents are 2-3 times more likely than their peers to attempt suicide.
