Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) is a community-driven health assessment and improvement process that helps communities apply strategic thinking skills to prioritize public health issues and identify solutions.

The MAPP process follows six phases. This page provides details on current phases of the 2013 Delaware County MAPP process. For full details on the first four phases which have been completed, refer to the completed phases. For details on the MAPP model, please see the MAPP Factsheet  or the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) MAPP site.

1.) Organization: The Partnership for a Healthy Delaware County (PHDC) steering committee was recruited and convened.

2.) Visioning: Vision and Values Statements were created by a PHDC subcommittee.

3.) Assessment:  Four assessments looking at different aspects of the community’s health are performed:

MAPP Phase 4.) Strategic issues: After results of the four Delaware County MAPP assessments were reviewed, five strategic issues were identified as health priorities:

MAPP Phase 5.) Goals, objectives and strategies: Goals and outcome objectives have been developed for the priorities identified in phase 4. Broad strategies have been identified to achieve the goals and objectives. 

MAPP Phase 6.) Action Cycle: Planning, Implementation and Evaluation of the goals, objectives and strategies developed in phase 5 are complete. Although this is the final phase of the MAPP process, it is not the end of the process. The PHDC will continue to meet to review progress made toward the goals and objectives for each of the five health priorities. 

The Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) provides details on the five MAPP priorities along with the goals, objectives, strategies and action plans developed to address each priority and is posted here for public review and comment. 

Workgroups consisting of PHDC members and other community partners have been formed to address these priorities through the next two phases of MAPP.
