Community Health Needs

Community Health Needs

2018 11 15

In January 2018, a group in Navajo County joined together to conduct community health planning for Navajo County. Led by staff from the Navajo County Public Health Services District (NCPHSD), participants from many agencies began the Mobilizing Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) process, a “community-driven strategic planning process for improving community health.”

Every three years the Community Health Needs survey will be completed and updated by the community and partners.

The process includes multiple phases including organizing the group, creating a vision, assessing the community’s health, identifying issues, developing goals and strategies, and putting those strategies into action. The end goal is to create a public health system in which all organizations are coordinated and communicating with each other to make the system as efficient and effective as possible.
