Implementing Healthy People 2020 with MAP-IT

MAP-IT (Mobilize, Assess, Plan, Implement, Track) is a framework that can
help you plan and evaluate public health interventions. MAP-IT was designed
by the CDC to assist public health professionals to achieve the Healthy
People 2020 objectives.

MAP-IT can help you plan how to:

* Mobilize partners.
* Assess the needs of your community.
* Create and implement a plan to reach Healthy People 2020 objectives.
* Track your community’s progress.

MAP-IT includes an online guide with resources to help you use each step
of this framework. You can find an overview of each step, questions to consider, links to the Community Toolbox and other toolkits. It also gives examples of what other states have done with each step. At the end, find a link to the Healthy People plan developed by each state and territory for more fresh ideas that could lead to better health for people in the U.S.
