Healthy People Initiative

The Healthy People initiative is a collaborative health promotion and disease prevention effort with a vision towards a healthier nation. It is a comprehensive set of goals and objectives aimed at improving health and eliminating health disparities over the course of a decade. With established baselines, measurable objectives and ten-year targets, progress is monitored throughout the decade, and strategies are identified to facilitate progress. The fourth generation of this initiative, Healthy People 2020, was launched in December 2010.
