MAPP is: A community-wide strategic planning tool for improving public health. A method to help communities prioritize public health issues, identify resources for addressing them, and take action.
MAPP provides… a framework, guidance, structure, and best practices… for developing healthy communities.
Paradigm Shift MAPP is a journey, not a destination. MAPP is a shift in how we think about public health activities and planning with our communities. MAPP is a complete, long- term, system-wide PARADIGM SHIFT.
