It is also an annex to the Arizona State Emergency Response and Recovery Plan.
A plan to improve the health of Arizonans over the next decade based upon the national Healthy People 2010 planning agenda using a unique community-based approach that is best suited to our large and

Each area includes strategies that ADHS and county and tribal health departments are involved with. But beyond those there are also many strategies designed to engage all sectors of the community: businesses, schools, fire and police, volunteer groups, religious organizations ... the list goes on!
