Healthy Wisconsin

We can make Wisconsin healthier, together.

Wisconsin’s health is our health. Your health. And the health and well-being of everyone who calls this place home. It’s part of the communities in which we live, play, work and learn. And that means making it better is something we can only do together. So take a closer look at the challenges we face and the progress we’re making. Because understanding Wisconsin’s health is the first step to ensuring opportunities for better health for ourselves and our neighbors.

We’re engaging everyone in the pursuit of a healthier Wisconsin.

Making Wisconsin healthier for everyone isn’t just possible—it’s happening now, in small and big ways all over this state.

Wisconsin’s health is everywhere—in our homes and relationships, where we work and play, and in our community organizations, institutions and policies.
