and Stroke Prevention 2015-2015 Action Plan
NH Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention 2015-2020 Action Plan
In June of 2014, the NH Division of Public Health Services convened a statewide meeting of representatives from public and private organizations serving various roles in community health-related coalitions. The focus of the meeting was to develop an action plan to address the goals identified in the State Health Improvement Plan for the priority area of heart disease and stroke. Additional input was sought from stakeholders throughout the development process.
Six goals were identified and priority strategic actions for each were
incorporated into this strategic action plan.
The six goals created by the plan are:
1. Controlling high blood pressure
2. Controlling high blood cholesterol
3. Increasing awareness of signs and symptoms of heart attack and stroke and the need to call 911
4. Improving emergency response
5. Improving quality of care
6. Eliminating disparities
