Planning for Healthy People 2020
Every 10 years, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) sets and monitors a group of national health objectives focusing on increasing the quality and years of healthy life, and eliminating health disparities. Healthy People 2020 is currently assessing the objectives of the past decade, measuring the impact of its prevention activity, and developing new 10-year targets.
HHS is seeking public input from communities across the country on the proposed Healthy People 2020 objectives. A public comment database on the proposed objectives is available. Visit the Healthy People 2020 Web site, or see the list of proposed Healthy People 2020 Objectives.
