Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) is a community-wide assessment and strategic planning tool for improving health, developed by the National Association of County and City Health Officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

MAPP provides communities with a framework to collect and analyze health data; identify and prioritize community health issues; and develop and implement action plans that address defined needs.  Locally the MAPP process has been facilitated by the Charlottesville/Albemarle Health Department for the City and County.

There are four MAPP assessments:

  • Community Health Status:  The collection, analysis and presentation of quantitative data regarding key community attributes and health indicators.
  • Community Themes and Strengths:  Qualitative data reflecting opinions related to the most pressing health needs in our community.
  • Local Public Health System Performance Assessment: An evaluation of the collective performance of the many entities within the local public health system.
  • Forces of Change:  An overview of key trends, events or factors that currently or could potentially impact the quality of health or health care delivery.
