The Early Childhood Wellness Plan (ECWP) 2016-2020

The Preventive Health Collaborative’s (PHC) Early Childhood Wellness Plan (ECWP) 2016-2020 provides PHC partners, stakeholders, advocates, & decision makers an easy way to track the health and wellness of children ages birth to five in Maricopa County.

The Early Childhood Wellness Plan 2016-2020 performs three functions:

  1. Provides a shared measurement system. The ECWP serves as a clearinghouse of indicators that our partners have identified as priority areas to track as we measure our impact.
  2. Provides direction. The ECWP provides targets for 2020. As the PHC keeps track of these indicators throughout the next four years, we will be able to assess which indicators are improving and which ones are not.
  3. Inform our partners about nationally-recognized best practices. The ECWP provides information on evidence-based and promising programs that our partners can implement to collectively improve our ECWP health indicators.

We will formally release the plan in February after our Partner meeting. The plan is a living document and we encourage your input. Email us back and let us know what you think!

The PHC has released its Video

We are very happy to show you our new PHC video that our staff and steering committee invested so much time into developing. This video will provide potential PHC partners with a description of our collaborative, our priorities and theory of change. Email us, and let us know what you think!
