Healthy People 2020 Objectives -- Opportunity for Input

Every 10 years, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) sets national objectives for promoting health and preventing disease through a process known as Healthy People 2020. Right now, HHS is in the planning mode for Healthy People 2020. As a national initiative, Healthy People’s success depends on public input.

The draft Healthy People 2020 objectives are now available online. This is your chance for input! You can review the draft objectives and submit comments on the objectives or suggest new ones. Comments will be accepted through December 31, 2009.
