The DSHNA identified four priority areas of focus, and provided 14 recommendations to address them in the recommendations report.
Recent Delaware stakeholder reports and publications associated with priority areas are linked below.
Focus: heart disease, diabetes, and asthma.
Maternal and Child Health
Focus: teen pregnancy, premature births, and low birth weight infants.
Substance Use Disorders
Focus: opioid epidemic, accidental overdose, and tobacco and e-cigarette use.
Focus: diagnosis (youth), suicide/suicide ideations, and the impact of trauma.
None of these recommendations can or should be implemented separately. To receive the biggest benefit, the DE SHIP must include policies on a system-wide basis.
