Mobilizing Action Through Partnership & Planning

Community Themes & Strengths Assessment
The Community Themes and Strengths Assessment (CTSA) answers the questions: “What is important to our community?” “How is quality of life perceived in our community?” and “What assets do we have that can improve community health? ” This assessment results in a strong understanding of community issues and concerns, perceptions about quality of life and a map of community assets.

The CTSA committee developed the Quality of Life Survey and encourages all Burlington County residents to voice their opinion. View the preliminary results of the Burlington County Quality of Life Survey.

Local Public Health System Assessment


The Local Public Health System Assessment (LPHSA) answers the questions, “What are the components, activities, competencies, and capacities of our local public health system?” and “How are the essential services being provided to our community?” The LPHSA is a broad assessment, involving the organizations and entities that contribute to public health in the community.

Community Health Status Assessment


The Community Health Status Assessment (CHSA) answers the question, “How healthy are our residents?” and “What does the health status of our community look like?” The results of the CHSA provide the Mobilizing Action through Partnership and Planning (MAPP) Committee with an understanding of the community's health status and ensures that the community's priorities include specific health status issues. 

As a first step in the community health assessment process, the CHSA Committee designed a Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (BRFS) to be administered throughout the county via telephone interviews. The data collection was managed by Holleran Consulting who provided the committee with an analysis of the data. The committee will now move forward with the CHSA, which will include, in addition to the BRFS, census, environmental health, infectious and chronic disease, and quality of life data for the county.
