Community Health Improvement Plan
Once MAPP conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment, the community convenes to discuss the findings and prioritize strategies to address a health improvement goal. These community goals and strategies are compiled into a Community Health Improvement Plan.
MAPP completed its first health needs assessment in January 2010. Through facilitated community discussions, twelve priority themes were identified that affect the health of our communities. Of those, the following three were selected to address in 2011:
• Healthy Lifestyle Choices
• Connecting Community Resources
• Substance Abuse and Domestic Violence
Groups formed around each topic and work began on identifying strategies and creating action plans. This collaborative process resulted in the 2011 Community Health Improvement Plan. Having completed another round of community health assessment and community prioritization, MAPP has released a 2015 Community Health Improvement Plan that captures collective impact partner strategies for Increasing Family Well-being. Strategies are targeting the increase in five family protective factors.
The Community Health Improvement Plan is a dynamic document. Changes and progress made on partner efforts can be viewed on the Projects page.
