The Cherokee County Community Health Coalition has embarked on the process of creating a County Health Improvement Plan, by engaging in the MAPP process. Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnership is a tool to guide communities through the process of organizing for success, assessing the current health status, along with trends or events that have or may impact the County, and then devising a plan that addresses the identified health priorities. This process strengthens the links between organizations that contribute to public health.
