The County is taking a number of actions to keep residents safe and minimize the spread of COVID-19. Find status information.

Local Health Improvement Coalition

The Local Health Improvement Coalition (LHIC) is comprised of partnerships from across Baltimore County government, private industry and education. The LHIC supports the Maryland State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP) in its efforts to improve population health by joint sponsorship of activities and events.

The LHIC has created a Community Health Improvement Plan (PDF) to work together to improve population health in Baltimore County. As the group engages in the Action Plans and steps in these areas, updates will be provided. The three areas prioritized are access to care, behavioral health and chronic disease.

View the core functions (PDF) of assessment, policy development and assurance of services provide the framework for all activities in public health.
