Health by Design Strategic Plan (2018-2020)

In the spring of 2018, the board of Health by Design adopted a new strategic plan. With that plan, we continue to work at the
intersection of the built environment and public health and remain invested in four core program areas: walking, biking, transit and land use.

Our MISSION is to collaborate across sectors and disciplines to ensure Indiana communities have neighborhoods, public spaces and transportation infrastructure that promote active living for all.

Our VISION is vibrant, thriving communities that help all people live active, healthier lives.

The strategic plan includes five goals, with corresponding strategies and tactics, across four broad areas:

• Increase equitable, safe, accessible, convenient and connected options for walking, biking and public transit
• Encourage responsible land use

• Increase the diversity, engagement, effectiveness and satisfaction of Health by Design partners

Organization and Operations
• Strengthen the stability, effectiveness and sustainability of Health by Design

Health Equity
• Build awareness, understanding, capacity and ability to address health equity
