Action Cycle

Developing and Implementing an Action Plan

The Action Cycle is the last of MAPP’s 6 phases.  During this phase, the local public health system develops and implements an action plan for addressing the previously identified priority goals and objectives. Three interlocking activities occur during the action phase: planning what needs to be done to achieve the county’s goals for public health, creating an organizational structure that can carry out the plan and putting in place a way of evaluating progress on a continuous basis.

The work of the four action teams is supplemented and informed by a Data and Evaluation team which collaborates with the Epidemiology and Communicable Disease data experts at the Will County Health Department to identify disease trends affecting the health of county residents and ensure data-driven policy decisions.
