Public Comment- Open October 20 through November 7

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is soliciting written comments regarding new objectives proposed to be added to Healthy People 2020 since the last public comment period in fall 2013. Healthy People 2020 will continue to provide opportunities for public input periodically throughout the decade to ensure that Healthy People 2020 reflects current public health priorities and public input.

Public participation helps shape the framework, objectives, and targets of Healthy People 2020.  During this round of public comment, HHS would like your input on proposed new objectives to be added to the topic areas listed below.

These proposed objectives were developed by topic area workgroups, which are led by various agencies within the federal government. They have been reviewed by the Federal Interagency Workgroup on Healthy People 2020 and are presented now for your review and comment.

You are also invited to suggest additional objectives for consideration that address critical public health issues within the existing 42 topic areas of Healthy People 2020. All proposed new objectives must meet each of the objective selection criteria provided in the PDF below. Please review these criteria prior to reviewing and commenting on objectives: Objective Selection Criteria [PDF - 143KB]

Public comment will allow you to:

Comment on proposed new objectives to be added to the following topic areas:      

  • Arthritis, Osteoporosis, and Chronic Back Conditions      
  • Early and Middle Childhood       
  • Heart Disease and Stroke      
  • Maternal, Infant, and Child Health
