A Healthier Montana

By working together on shared public health priorities, we can achieve a healthier Montana. A network of partners from state, local, and tribal government, non-profit, health care, business, and other sectors are using data from the State Health Assessment and goals outlined in the State Health Improvement Plan to address their mission:  To protect and improve the health of every Montanan through evidence-based action and community engagement.

Learn more about working towards A Healthier Montana with the updated orientation brochure. Also, explore two recently completed collaborative projects as a result of implementing the State Health Improvement Plan:


The 2017 State Health Assessment provides a broad overview of the health of Montanans, from birth to death, physical health to mental health, and communicable disease to chronic disease. It also includes information about the social determinants of health, or, how where we live, work, and play impacts our health and wellbeing. 

The 2019-2023 Montana State Health Improvement Plan highlights shared statewide priorities for improving the health of Montanans. It includes objectives for monitoring improvement over time and proposed prevention and health promotion, clinical, policy, and health equity strategies for driving improvement.

This work is informed by Healthy People 2030, a program maintained by the federal government to set data-driven national objectives to improve health and well-being over the next decade.
