Welcome to the Healthy Illinois 2021 Site!

Healthy Illinois 2021 is an effort under the direction of Governor Bruce Rauner to improve the health of people in Illinois. Many programs fall under Healthy Illinois 2021. This website shares goals and updates on achieving our state health goals. The State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP) and the State Innovation Model (SIM) are two large programs that make up Healthy Illinois 2021. The SHIP will describe priorities and strategies for health status and public health system improvement, with a focus on prevention. The SIM is an initiative to develop a strong health care system. This system will make health care better for people in Illinois. The SHIP Implementation Coordination Council is a diverse stakeholder group that informs work on the SHIP and SIM. Learn more about the SHIP efforts and the SIM initiative.
