The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is soliciting written comments on the proposed objectives for Healthy People 2030.  This public comment period will allow comments on the proposed HP2030 objectives and members of the public can also propose their own objectives.

PHI's CEO and President, Dr. Mary Pittman, serves on the Secretary’s Advisory Committee on National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives for 2030. The committee submits recommendations to the Secretary of HHS to inform the development and implementation of the nation’s disease prevention and health promotion objectives for Healthy People 2030. These recommendations will be used by HHS to develop the next iteration of the Healthy People initiative, along with comments made by the public. What issues do you think are important? Make your voice heard: 

 

Previous public comments on the proposed Healthy People 2030 framework helped shape the vision, mission, foundational principles, plan of action, and overarching goals for Healthy People 2030. In this public comment period, HHS would like input on the proposed Core, Developmental, and Research objectives.

 

In response to stakeholder input, Healthy People 2030 will be a streamlined set of national health objectives guiding the Nation in efforts to improve health. Heathy People 2030 will continue to represent critical public health priorities by addressing the leading causes of morbidity and mortality and driving action at the national, state, and local levels.

 

Members of the public are invited to submit comments on the proposed objectives from December 3, 2018 to January 17, 2019. Learn more and submit your comments today.
