Florida Department of Health in Santa Rosa County

Community Health Planning 

Since 2012, the Florida Department of Health in Santa Rosa County (DOH-Santa Rosa) has been involved in community health improvement planning utilizing a process called Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP). Working collaboratively with community partners and stakeholders, data from the four MAPP assessments and community health assessments were analyzed to identify health issues that adversely affect the quality of life for Santa Rosa County residents. Based on conclusions drawn from this analysis, the community partners developed the Santa Rosa Community Health Improvement Plan for addressing the most pressing issues and creating sustainable solutions.
