Strategic Plan 2006-2010 logic model
description of chart
The long term outcome is improved health; prevention and management of secondary conditions; and elimination of health disparities experienced by people with disabilities. Five intermediate outcome goals feed into the long term outcome:
1. Build capacity of the MTDH program and partnerships;
2. Support direct services and programs that meet the specific needs of people with disabilities;
3. Increase access to generic services, ensuring civil rights of people with disabilities;
4. Improve access to community environments, ensuring civil rights of people with disabilities; and
5. Integrate disability and health agenda into public policies that influence the health of people with disabilities.
Short-term outcome goals support each of the intermediate outcome goals:
1. To build capacity: Increase availability of disability and health data; educate partners about disability and health issues, and secure additional funding.
2. To support direct services and programs: Train partners to implement programs and provide services (such as Living Well with a Disability); and support peer mentoring programs (such as Have Healthy Teeth).
3. To increase access to generic services: Increase awareness of public health partners about barriers experienced by people with disabilities; increase awareness of people with disabilities of the benefits of generic services; and support removal of barriers.
4. To improve access to community environments: Increase community awareness of barriers experienced by people with disabilities and support removal of barriers.
5. To integrate the disability and health agenda into public policies: Educate policy professionals, partner with other agencies and programs; people with disabilities must participate in advisory groups; and we will integrate the disability and health agenda into long-range plans.
Outputs, products and activities support each of the short term outcome goals:
1. Surveillance, disability advisors, epidemiology studies and new partnerships contribute to availability of data, education and additional funding.
2. Nutrition, oral health, funding and the Living Well with a Disability Program contribute to training and supporting programs, services and peer mentoring.
3. Assessment tools, curriculum, information and materials, technical assistance, Disability Advisors, and awareness activities contribute to awareness of public health partners and people with disabilities, and contribute to removal of barriers.
4. Surveys, training, the Accessibility Ambassador Program and architectural design increase community awareness of barriers and support their removal.
5. Establishing partnerships and collaborative arrangements helps educate policy professionals, contributes to partnerships with other agencies and programs; facilitates participation of people with disabilities in advisory groups and helps integrate disability and health into long-range plans.
