MAPP Process Efforts to Improve Public Health
While the Action Cycle marks the end of the formal MAPP process it also marks a new beginning; the effort to improve public health by establishing a formal organization charged with implementing the goals and objectives arrived at through MAPP.
The program of implementation begins with the formation of a permanent structure charged with formulating and implementing MAPP. This permanent structure is constituted by the Will County MAPP Collaborative. The MAPP Collaborative consists of an Executive Committee, four Action Teams and a Data and Evaluation team, established to address the priorities of the Will County Strategic Plan. The purpose of the MAPP Collaborative Executive Committee is to:
- Provide oversight of the overall county-wide needs assessment process and governance to the implementation of the resulting action plan.
- Address the strategic issues as identified in the county-wide community needs assessment and strategic plan
- Promote ongoing collaboration between the local public health system and residents of Will County.
