Nearly 3 million Coloradans, 60 percent of the state’s population, live in the Metro region. The Partnership collaborates with regional leaders in health care, human services, behavioral health, environment, philanthropy, education, business, local government and others to achieve its goals of advancing health equity across the region. In 2016, the Partnership identified four priority areas of focus including data sharing, healthy eating and active living, behavioral health, and partner alignment and formalized its approach to collaboration in the Metro Denver Partnership for Health Roadmap.
