Healthy People Tools for Working in the Community
Healthy People 2020 provides tools for working in the community. MAP-IT, which stands for Mobilize, Assess, Plan, Implement, Track, is a five-stage framework that can be used to plan and evaluate public health interventions to achieve Healthy People 2020 objectives. MAP-IT pages include Planning and Funding resources to help get you on your way. MAP-IT badges may also be inserted in a blog or web page as a link to these resources.

Healthy People is based on a simple but powerful model:
- Establish national health objectives.
- Provide data and tools to enable States, cities, communities, and individuals across the country to combine their efforts to achieve them.
- Create and implement a plan to reach Healthy People 2020 objectives.
- Track your community’s progress.
