Health Promotion and Prevention

The Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan (MPHWP) Benchmarking Project

The NWMR MPHWP Benchmark Project was recently completed and presented at the Population Health Symposium in November 2016.

The project addressed the following:
1) the nature and the success of the priorities and actions in the 2009-2013 round of MPHWP’s and the factors that contributed to their success or otherwise;
2) indicators that can be used to determine success and track progress across selected action types included in the plans, and governance strategies that would increase the likelihood that these actions are implemented successfully; and
3) key strategies and actions that will enhance successful implementation of current and future MPHWP’s plans.
