Public Comment

The Healthy People 2020 public comment period is now closed. 

During the fall 2014 public comment period, we asked for input 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
  • Tobacco Use

Users were also invited to suggest additional objectives for consideration that address critical public health issues within the existing 42 topic areas of Healthy People 2020. 

Comments received during the public comment period are carefully reviewed by the topic area workgroups, Healthy People 2020 Federal Interagency Workgroup, and other Healthy People 2020 stakeholders. As appropriate, objectives will be revised or added to reflect the comments received. The updated set of Healthy People 2020 objectives will be incorporated on HealthyPeople.gov.

Healthy People 2020 will provide opportunities for public input periodically throughout the decade to ensure that Healthy People 2020 reflects current public health priorities. Thank you for your participation in this public comment round.
