Launch of MKE Elevate: Milwaukee’s Community Health Improvement Plan

Welcome to MKE Elevate, an ambitious community-driven plan working to elevate the health and well-being of Milwaukee residents.

Today, we join you, the Milwaukee public health community, in releasing the city’s first community-driven health improvement plan. The MKE Elevate health improvement plan is a five-year agenda that seeks to support safer and healthier neighborhoods by aligning existing work and identifying new strategies around economic security, a fair and inclusive society, and positive mental health.

MKE Elevate was developed through an extensive process to assess the health of residents citywide and hear directly from residents, agencies, and organizations. The City of Milwaukee Health Department (MHD) has been proud to facilitate this development process - but this plan belongs to all of us. It calls for the MHD and you - our partners - to support and expand work in the three priority areas identified by our community as the most pressing issues affecting health outcomes citywide.

Review the MKE Elevate Community Health Improvement Plan:

To accomplish the work outlined in 24 objectives and 89 strategies, we will need sustained commitment and partnership. Please review the plan, share it widely, and share with us your commitment to aligning work around these efforts.
