Public Comment Sought on Healthy People 2020

Care About a Healthier Nation? We Want Your Input - Developing Healthy People 2020

Since 1979, Healthy People is the set of science-based health promotion and disease prevention objectives for the nation.  The Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) seeks the public's input for the 2020 objectives.

DHHS has established this public comment site to allow the public to provide input on the proposed objectives for Healthy People 2020.  The public can comment on specific objectives (and see the comments left by others), or provide General Comments.  Participants may comment anonymously or create a profile. Comments will be accepted through December 31, 2009.

Healthy People 2020 will be released in two phases. The framework will be released in 2009. In 2010, the Healthy People 2020 objectives will be released along with guidance for achieving the new 10-year targets. For more information about Healthy People, visit their home page.
