This workshop will explain how to adapt a planning framework called Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP), developed by NACCHO, to facilitate the comprehensive planning process for an HIV system of care. MAPP’s interactive design as a community-driven planning tool encompasses six phases. This stepwise approach considers the local system and creates a common vision with supporting strategies to achieve the vision. The workshop will demonstrate how planners, grantees, and consumers can collaboratively create a plan that depicts the HIV care system and outlines the goals and strategies for refining the continuum of care. Using MAPP as a guide, participants will learn about planning to provide quality care that is consistent with the implementation of healthcare reform and the National HIV/AIDS Strategy.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to describe key components of the MAPP process and how MAPP can be used to develop and inform comprehensive planning.
  • By the completion of the workshop, participants will be able to identify additional resources to incorporate the MAPP process into their own local and State planning processes
  • By the completion of the workshop, participants will be able to indicate how using the MAPP process can facilitate developing goals, strategies, and activities aligned to support the National HIV/AIDS Strategy.
