Minnesota Department of Health’s
Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) 

SHIP is active in all 87 counties and
10 tribal nations in Minnesota

SHIP was launched in 2008 as part of Minnesota’s bipartisan health reform effort. The Minnesota Legislature must renew the funding biannually and MDH awards grants to counties and cities across Minnesota.

Local communities then decide how to focus their efforts to prevent chronic diseases including cancer, heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.

The goal is to help Minnesotans live longer, healthier lives by supporting community driven solutions.

SHIP Strategies:

  • Active Living
  • Healthy Eating
  • Commercial tobacco-free living
  • Well-being
