Newark Master Plan
The Health Planning Division of the Newark Department of Child and Family Wellbeing (DCFWB) assists management in setting policy to develop the goals, objectives, and parameters of the department's medical, social, and environmental health services while ensuring access, quality, and outcome-based care for Newark residents.
Established in September 2003, the Health Planning Division was established in order to allow the DCFWB to focus its energies on issues affecting the community. The division is responsible for making recommendations regarding public health interventions to reduce illness, disability, premature death, and environmental hazards that impair community health and quality of life. The division also uses disease trend information gathered by the Division of Surveillance and Prevention to identify service gaps and develop strategies to address the needs of the community.
As part of an effort to foster partnerships with public and private sectors, community organizations, and universities and colleges to integrate strategies for health planning, the Health Planning Division also has implemented the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships (MAPP) Committee.
MAPP, a model standard set forth by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for use by all local health departments in the United States, is designed to help the Health Planning Division identify service gaps and facilitate citywide health planning activities development.
