The MAPP process includes six steps (NACCHO 2010):
- 1. Organizing for Success: This step involves organizing the planning process and developing partnerships.
- 2. Visioning: The visioning step engages stakeholders in a collaborative, creative process of developing a shared community vision with common values.
- 3. Conducting Community Assessments: Four community assessments provide information about internal and external environmental trends relevant to the community:
- • Community Themes and Strengths Assessment: Identifies local community interests, perceptions about quality of life, and assets.
- • Local Public Health System Assessment: Appraises the capacity of the local public health system to conduct essential public health services.
- • Community Health Status Assessment: Analyzes data about health status, quality of life, and risk factors.
- • Forces of Change Assessment: Identifies changing external forces and dynamics of the community and the local public health system.
