Every decade, Healthy People makes numerous changes based on years of feedback from a diverse group of individuals and organizations.
For Healthy People 2030, the biggest change is that we’ve reduced the number of objectives. With fewer objectives, we avoid overlap and prioritize the most pressing public health issues — and make it easier for you to find the objectives that are relevant to your work.
To help you continue your work in the new decade, we’ve created a tool that labels each Healthy People 2020 objective as retained (with data that can be compared across decades), modified, related, or removed, and directs you to any similar objectives in Healthy People 2030.
