Highlights

  • This month, celebrate National Outdoors Month by taking advantage of one of Baltimore County's many parks and walking trails. Finding them is easy with our special web features.

  • Did you know that men are 24 percent less likely than women to have had a medical check-up within the last year? During National Men's Health Week, help make the men in your life aware of the importance of regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.

About Us

The Baltimore County Health Coalition is working to achieve Maryland State Health Improvement process objectives and ensure that we have healthy people living, working, and playing in Baltimore County. As the Coalition continues to move forward with its initiatives, additional information will be posted to this website. 

The Baltimore County Local Health Improvement Process explains the indicators that the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene reports for Baltimore County. In addition to its data being used for planning purposes, it offers a variety of health resources for the public.

Priorities

The Coalition is working to reduce the following:

  • Low birth weight and very low birth weight    
  • Proportion of young children and adolescents who are obese   
  • Tobacco use by adults*
  • Proportion of youths who use any kind of tobacco product*

*These priorities are being addressed by the Baltimore County Tobacco Coalition. 

Data

Baltimore County has some notable health strengths (PDF) and other areas where an investment in targeted action could pay dividends over the upcoming years. Review the Baltimore County Health Local Coalition Baltimore County Health Local Coalition Action Plan (PDF) and Year-One Progress Report (PDF).
