The Healthy People 2020 public comment period is now closed. During this round of public comment, we asked for input on proposed new objectives to be added to the following Topic Areas: (1) Educational and Community-Based Programs and (2) Social Determinants of Health. Users also were invited to suggest additional objectives for consideration that address critical public health issues within the existing 42 Healthy People 2020 Topic Areas.
Comments received during the public comment period will be 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 www.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.
