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  County Health Department Addresses Lead  Poisoning 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  training programs Lead fundraising and policy initiatives. Mobilize Rob works for the Springfield County Health  Department and was recently put in charge of  their Lead Poisoning Prevention Program  (LPPP). After looking at trend data, Rob sees  that rates have not decreased in Springfield  County as quickly as the rest of the State. He  also reviews national data in Healthy People  2020 and finds that the county’s rates are  higher than the national baseline and target  measures. Rob contacts his State’s Healthy  People Coordinator to learn more about  statewide efforts to meet the environmental  health objectives in Healthy People 2020. Rob  then does a brief environmental scan to see  what the best practices are for lead poisoning  prevention and what actions similar  communities have taken to address the  problem. After his initial research, Rob decides that the  LPPP needs to take a new approach and  brings together key stakeholders in the county  to help develop a plan. He invites county  representatives from housing, environmental  health, and education and local public health

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
