The Action Cycle links three activities – Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation. Each of these activities builds upon the others in a continuous and interactive manner.

While the Action Cycle is the final phase of MAPP, it is not the “end” of the process. MAPP is a continuous, cyclical planning model.

During the Action Cycle phase, the efforts of the previous phases begin to produce results, as the local public health system develops and implements an action plan for addressing priority goals and objectives. This is also one of the most challenging phases, as it may be difficult to sustain the process and continue implementation over time.

The Partnership for a Health GEAUGA published it community health improvement plan on January 22, 2015.
