At Health Map Online you will find maps and additional information about all aspects of health in central Illinois. Our goals are to:
1. Improve emergency preparedness through better access to current health and facilities information.
2. Support public health and well-being through access to integrated information that can improve health.
3. Integrate mapping applications with other information to improve logistical decisions and to allow for better physical access to goods and services that enhance health.
Example: During the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, CUPHD used geographic information systems mapping to better target areas where vaccination rates from CUPHD's vaccination distribution campaign were low. In particular we targeted places with low income and vulnerable populations and parts of the community where other providers may not have reached.
