Health Improvement Partnership-Cuyahoga (HIP-Cuyahoga) understands that neighborhoods and communities are not all created equal, and some people are born and live in places where it is difficult to grow up healthy. The conditions in which people live, and the opportunities they have, form the foundation for health and without them, people are more likely to live shorter, sicker lives. That’s why more than 100 community partners have come together as the HIP-Cuyahoga Consortium to build opportunities for EVERYONE in Cuyahoga County to have a fair chance to be healthy. When healthy living is easier, we all live longer and healthier lives.

Health Matters Here!

What if on your next visit, your doctor checked your weight, your blood pressure and your ZIP code? Your neighborhood matters when it comes to your health. Your ZIP code can predict how long or healthy you live–but it shouldn’t be this way. Cuyahoga County’s urban residents have the poorest health and live the shortest lives–up to 20 years shorter than suburban residents. To ensure everyone has the same chance to be healthy, we’re tackling social issues, like structural racism, and personal challenges, like being able to buy healthy foods and exercise safely in ALL of our neighborhoods. We know health matters here.


Policy Makers

Policy Makers

Inequities that lead to poor health are bad for everyone, not just those who are sick or live in certain neighborhoods. We're working to shape systems and policies to ensure that everyone benefits from the policies and practices within our county, communities and our organizations.



No single person or organization alone can create a large-scale and lasting change as we can together. With more than 100 agencies from government, academic, and nonprofit sectors, as well as dozens of community residents, HIP-Cuyahoga represents a new way of doing business for our community.
