It starts with one community at a time. With the Healthy People 2020 topic areas and objectives in place, we can now provide data and tools to enable States, cities, communities, and individuals across the country to combine their efforts to achieve them. Start with MAP-IT: A Guide To Using Healthy People 2020 in Your Community.
The MAP-IT framework can be used to plan and evaluate public health interventions to achieve Healthy People 2020 objectives. The guide walks you through how to Mobilize, Assess, Plan, Implement, and Track Healthy People 2020 in your community. It also includes resources on how to use Healthy People to make the case for funding. Even if you aren't able to use MAP-IT, you can still help implement Healthy People 2020 by sharing one of our MAP-IT Web badges on your site. Let's get Healthy People underway and reach our 2020 goals!
