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 public comment periods are carefully reviewed by the topic area workgroups, the Healthy People 2020 Federal Interagency Workgroup, and other Healthy People 2020 stakeholders. As appropriate, objectives are revised or added to reflect the comments received. The updated set of Healthy People 2020 objectives are then incorporated into 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.
