Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP)

MAPP is a strategic approach to community health improvement. As a tool, MAPP helps communities improve health and quality of life through a community-wide and community-driven strategic planning process. Through MAPP, communities seek to achieve optimal health by identifying and using their resources wisely, taking into account their unique circumstances and needs, and forming effective partnerships for strategic action.
