Using MAP-IT to Help Build a Healthy Community

MAP-IT means: Mobilize, Assess, Plan, Implement, and Track

To begin to achieve the goal of improving health, a community must develop a strategy. That strategy, to be successful, must be supported by many individuals who are working together.

In much the same way you might map out a trip to a new place, you can use the MAP-IT technique to “map out” the path toward the change you want to see in your community.
