This project will support county and tribal health department strategic planning and programming through a collaboration with the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS). As part of its efforts to support health departments around the state, DPHHS undertook a department-wide effort to provide counties with County Health Profiles, which are specific, county-level health data. This data offers an important new tool to help communities in Montana identify health needs and make plans to address them. County Health Profiles are now available to the public via DPHHS’ portal for the county health departments.
