Formulating Goals and Strategies

Development and Adoption of Strategy Statements

Goals and strategies provide a connection between the current reality (what the public health system and the community's health looks like now) and the vision (what the public health system and community's health will look like in the future). During this fifth phase of the MAPP process, participants take the strategic issues identified in the previous phase and formulate goal statements related to those issues. They, then, identify broad strategies for addressing issues and achieving goals related to the community's vision. The result is the development and adoption of an interrelated set of strategy statements.

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.
