8 8 MAPP & PPH: Comparison Both start with partnerships and end with improved health Both emphasize the health department working with community Both need to accommodate the specific contexts of a health department jurisdiction (demographics, geography, politics) MAPP emphasizes assessment process and planning, PPH emphasized program development and policy change
