2023 Community Health Needs Assessment
Community Health Needs
In January 2023, a coalition in Navajo County came together to initiate community health planning efforts for the region. Spearheaded by the Navajo County Public Health Services District (NCPHSD) team, participants representing various organizations embarked on the Mobilizing Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) process. This process, characterized as a "community-driven strategic planning approach to enhance community health," aimed to foster collaboration and improve the overall health and well-being of the community.
As part of this ongoing initiative, the Community Health Needs survey will now be conducted and refreshed every three years, with active involvement from the community and its partners.
The MAPP process involves several stages, including group formation, envisioning a healthier community, assessing the state of community health, pinpointing critical issues, formulating goals and strategies, and implementing these strategies. The ultimate objective is to establish a coordinated and communicative public health system, enabling all organizations to work together seamlessly and optimize the efficiency and effectiveness of the entire system.
