The purpose of Progress Reviews is to provide a venue for Federal agencies to report on
progress toward achieving the Healthy People 2010 goals and
objectives for each of the 28 focus areas. The review is a mechanism by
which the lead agencies for a particular focus area brief the Assistant
Secretary for Health on the latest data for the objectives and on
advances made toward the targets. It presents an opportunity for HHS and
other Federal agency representatives to discuss barriers that stand in
the way of achieving the targets and challenges them to explore
strategies for moving the Nation closer to meeting the goals for 2010.
Two rounds of reviews are planned for the decade for each of the focus
areas. The reviews are usually held in alphabetical order on a
monthly basis, if possible. The Assistant Secretary for Health chairs the reviews after
preparations have been completed by the agencies that have lead
responsibility for a given focus area.
The first round of reviews began in June 2002 and ended in December,
2005. A second round of reviews encompassing the same 28 focus
areas began in June 2006, and is ongoing.
Additional information about the reviews is available on the National
Center for Health Statistics'
