The Forces of Change Assessment identifies the external factors, trends, and events that will likely affect the health of Delaware residents and the State of Delaware’s public health system. This assessment is one of four assessments in the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnership (MAPP) process. The MAPP process is a community-driven strategic framework that was developed by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO). The aim of the MAPP process is to improve health and quality life in Delaware through strategic planning. 

In this assessment, seven categories of forces – economic, environmental, ethical, legal/political, scientific, social, and technological - are examined in order to comprehensively answer the following questions: What is occurring or might occur that affects the health of our community or the local public health system? What specific threats and/or opportunities are generated by these occurrences?

Your feedback will be featured in an in-depth, comprehensive statewide health profile that is being released at the end of 2016. This report will be used to inform the revised State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP) that is being implemented in 2017.
