Local Public Health Assessment
The Local Public Health Assessment uses a survey tool from the National Public Health Performance Standards (NPHPS) program. The NPHPS helps the local public health system answer questions such as, what are the activities and capacities of the local health system and how are public health services being provided to the community. The assessment was completed by community leaders and partnering organizations in all five northern Idaho counties.
Forces of Change Assessment
The Forces of Change assessment is one of four assessments conducted as part of the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnership (MAPP) process. This assessment focuses on identifying the trends, factors, and events that are likely to impact health and quality of life in northern Idaho’s counties. The Forces of Change assessment included one-on-one interviews with identified key community members and stakeholders.
