The Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD) is the local public health authority for the Cities of Champaign and Urbana and Champaign County. CUPHD, in conjunction with Carle Foundation Hospital, OSF Health of Mary Medical Center, and United Way of Champaign County, used the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnership (MAPP) model, a community-based model that necessitates community engagement at all levels to conduct the Champaign Community Health Assessment (CHA) and Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). We assessed the current health status of the community, identified needs, and created a comprehensive plan to improve our community’s health by acquiring input from community partners, planners, elected officials, and residents.
Based on the four MAPP assessments (community themes and strengths assessment, local public health system assessment, community health status assessment, and forces of change assessment), community leaders convened to identify priorities. After identifying top health concerns, participants voted to select the top three priorities to address in 2021-2023 implementation cycle.
