MAP-IT: A Guide To Using Healthy People 2020 in Your Community A Framework for Implementation No two public health interventions are exactly alike. But most interventions share a similar path  to success:  M obilize,  A ssess,  P lan,  I mplement,  T rack.  Otherwise known as MAP-IT, this framework can be used to plan and evaluate public health  interventions to achieve Healthy People 2020 objectives. Whether you are a seasoned public  health professional or new to the field, the MAP-IT framework will help you create your own path  to a healthy community and a healthier Nation. MAP-IT Principles MAP-IT in Action – In the Community: A  Local School Board Addresses Underage  Drinking  Mobilize Questions To Ask and Answer: What is the vision and mission of the  coalition? Why do I want to bring people  together? Who should be represented? Who are the potential partners  (organizations and businesses) in my  community? Start by mobilizing key individuals and  organizations into a coalition.  Look for partners who have a stake in creating  healthy communities and who will contribute to  the process. Aim for broad representation.  Next, identify roles for partners and assign  responsibilities. This will help to keep partners engaged in the  coalition. For example, partners can: Facilitate community input through  meetings, events, or advisory groups. Develop and present education and  Mobilize Mrs. King, the head of the school board, has  been answering phone calls nonstop for the  past 2 days. Parents of high school students  have been calling to ask what the school board  is going to do about a number of underage  drinking incidents at school events. The  incidents were recently written up in the local  paper. Mrs. King calls the other school board  members, and they all agree to hold an  emergency meeting. Before the meeting, Mrs. King contacts school  board members in surrounding towns to find  out how they have addressed underage  drinking in their schools. After a long, sometimes heated discussion, the  school board agrees to add a unit on alcohol  abuse to the school’s curriculum. They decide  that Mrs. King and Mr. Brown, another school  board member, will lead the process of  selecting, implementing, and evaluating a new  unit on alcohol use.
