Healthy People 2020 logoPublic Comment

We invite you to give us your comments and suggestions as part of the collaborative process of building Healthy People 2020. In 2008, feedback was collected through this site on various conceptual aspects and proposals for specific elements, including vision, mission, overarching goals, organizing framework, users, and implementation. General comments were also collected and used to inform the Healthy People 2020 process.

Healthy People 2020 will be launched in two phases. The organizing framework, including the vision, mission and overarching goals, will be released in 2009. The specific objectives, accompanied by strategies for achieving them, will be launched in 2010.

MARCH 2009 UPDATE: PRELIMINARY OBJECTIVE DEVELOPMENT COMMENT PERIOD. In preparation for the process of creating draft objectives for Healthy People 2020, we are seeking preliminary comments on existing Healthy People 2010 objectives. Comments received by April 24 will be considered as we create the draft objectives for Healthy People 2020. This is a preliminary input period that will help inform the development of a set of draft Healthy People 2020 objectives. A more extensive public comment period on the draft Healthy People 2020 objectives will be conducted through this site at a future date.

This public comment Web site will be open throughout the Healthy People 2020 development process, with intermittent submission deadlines that will allow us to compile and analyze comments received by specific points in the process. As development moves forward, additional materials will be posted for comment.

Start by creating a profile. Once you’ve created a profile, you may log in at any time using your user name and password. You may also submit or view comments anonymously without logging in.
