Every decade, the Healthy People initiative develops a new set of science-based, 10-year national objectives with the goal of improving the health of all Americans. The development of Healthy People 2030 includes establishing a framework for the initiative—the vision, mission, foundational principles, plan of action, and overarching goals—and identifying new objectives.
The development of Healthy People 2030 is a multiyear process with input from a diverse group of subject matter experts, organizations, and members of the public.
The framework explains the central ideas and function of the Healthy People 2030 initiative and it will guide the selection and prioritization of 2030 objectives. Review the Healthy People 2030 framework.
HHS is soliciting feedback on the proposed revision to the definition of health literacy for Healthy People 2030. Comments should address the strengths and/or weaknesses of the recommended definition, be brief and concise (limit 250 words), make specific editing suggestions, and cite articles that support suggested changes (if any). The deadline for submission is August 5, 2019.
