Get Healthy Idaho: Building Healthy and Resilient Communities

Get Healthy Idaho is a community-driven, placed-based health initiative striving to improve health outcomes, lower healthcare costs, reduce health disparities and improve health equity across Idaho.
 
Get Healthy Idaho is a strategic initiative of the Department of Health and Welfare and represents the Division of Public Health's statewide health improvement plan to address health disparities in Idaho communities. We believe the opportunity to be safe, healthy and resilient should be available everywhere for everyone in Idaho. Get Healthy Idaho is focused on improving priority health indicators (Diabetes, Obesity, Behavioral Health and Unintentional Injury) and their root causes by identifying high-need communities and investing in local collaborative partnerships to create upstream, community-led solutions.
