The community has spoken. Based on data from the City of Milwaukee Community Health Assessment, a community-wide survey of more than 3,000 people who live and/or work in the city of Milwaukee, a photo campaign, key stakeholder interviews, focus groups and meetings, MKE Elevate has released its proposed citywide public health priority action areas for the MKE Elevate Plan.
Based upon this extensive community input, the overarching goal of the MKE Elevate Community Health Improvement Plan will be:
To build safe and healthy neighborhoods
The City of Milwaukee Health Department Office of Violence Prevention has launched an intensive planning process focused on preventing violence in our community. MKE Elevate will inform that process, and focus its planning efforts on creating the conditions that support safe and healthy neighborhoods in three major priority areas:
- Positive mental health
- Inclusive & fair society
- Economic security
The diagram below shows the focus areas that are being proposed to support work within each of these areas.
