Community health improvement process
Jump to navigation Jump to search
- Community health improvement is not limited to issues classified within traditional public or health services categories, but may include environmental, business, economic, housing, land use, and other community issues indirectly affecting the public’s health. The community health improvement process involves an ongoing collaborative, community-wide effort to identify, analyze, and address health problems; assess applicable data; develop measurable health objectives and indicators; inventory community health assets and resources; identify community perceptions; develop and implement coordinated strat- egies; identify accountable entities; and cultivate community “ownership” of the entire process. An example of a community health improvement tool is Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP). Online at: http://mapp.naccho.org.
