Since 1980, the Healthy People initiative has set measurable objectives to improve the health and well-being of people nationwide. At the beginning of every decade, we launch a new iteration of the initiative that addresses the latest public health priorities and challenges.
Healthy People 2020
HHS has assessed progress toward meeting objective targets over the last decade. Individuals, organizations, and communities committed to improving health and well-being can leverage this information to target their efforts in the new decade.
Social Determinants of Health
Healthy People 2030 has an increased focus on how the environments where people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age affect health.
