National Healthy People 2020

  • Healthy People 2020 objectives were launched December 2, 2010 and are the fourth set of 10 year objectives for the nation.
  •  The objectives are designed to meet a broad range of health needs, encourage collaborations across sectors, guide individuals toward making informed health decisions and measure the impact of our prevention activity.
  • Every 10 years, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) leverages scientific insights and lessons learned from the past decade, along with new knowledge of current data, trends and innovations. Healthy People 2020 will reflect assessments of major risks to health and wellness, changing public health priorities and emerging issues related to our nation's health preparedness and prevention.
  • The Ohio Department of Health monitors trends in the Healthy People objectives in its many prevention programs.
  • The Ohio Department of Health will collaborate with Local Health Departments and other organizations to measure the impact of prevention efforts across the state.
