To advance the shared mission of improving the health of the people of Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Partnership Program relies on strong and sustainable partnerships among the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, its campus partners and communities throughout the state. The work and progress of these partnerships is reflected in the following publications.

2014-2019 Five-Year Plan
Published in late 2013, the 2014-2019 Five-Year Plan is the culmination of 18 months of strategic discussions within the Oversight and Advisory Committee and Partnership Education and Research Committee. It is the third five-year plan since the Wisconsin Partnership Program was created in 2004.
As the committees developed this plan, they gave consideration to sustaining successful programs and determining which health issues required greater attention. The committees assessed current grant programs, debated new initiatives, measured and evaluated impact, and sought public comment. There was affirmation of the overarching strategies of the plan - stewardship, balance and collaboration - and of the goal to achieve lasting impact on the health of the people of Wisconsin.

Supported by the Wisconsin Partnership Program, the Making Wisconsin the Healthiest State project seeks to help us understand and improve health across Wisconsin: Where are we doing well? Where do we need to improve? Where should we focus? What works to improve health?
