Goal: Promote health and safety in community settings.
A person’s community can have a major impact on their health and well-being. Healthy People 2030 focuses on ways organizations, businesses, schools, and residents can help build healthier communities.
Community organizations that provide preventive health care services can help improve health and well-being. Businesses can also help keep people safe and healthy — like by making sure employees use protective gear when needed and taking steps to make workplaces safer.
Schools and community organizations can play an important role in helping children and adolescents stay healthy. For example, giving children and adolescents opportunities to play sports can help them get more physical activity.
