Sullivan County Health Council
‘Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships’
In 2007, the Sullivan County Health Council (SCHC) initiated the MAPP process to improve community health. This community-driven strategic planning tool was facilitated by the Sullivan County Regional Health Department (SCRHD). MAPP is an interactive process that can improve the performance of health outcomes and local public health systems. Recognizing that health issues are not the result of one risk factor alone, the SCHC adopted the MAPP process to emphasize the importance of a community-driven assessment, planning and implementation (action) cycle. MAPP focuses on improving the community’s health but is only able to do so as long as you have adequate collaboration and partnerships with community groups and citizens.
