Comparable HP2020 objective
Modified, which includes core objectives that are continuing from HP2020 but underwent a change in measurement.
Changes between HP2020 and HP2030
This objective differs from Healthy People 2020 objective D-13 in that objective D-13 tracked adults with diagnosed diabetes who performed self-blood glucose-monitoring at least once daily, while this objective tracks adults with diabetes using insulin who perform self-monitoring of blood glucose at least once daily.
