Healthy People 2030 has a strong focus on eliminating health disparities and creating equitable opportunities for people to live healthy lives. Join us as we work to advance health equity, increase health literacy, and address social determinants of health in communities across the nation.
How does Healthy People 2030 advance health equity?
Health equity has been a focus of Healthy People since the initiative began, and our commitment to eliminating health disparities has only strengthened over time. That’s why we provide information, actionable tools, and evidence-based resources to help individuals, organizations, and communities advance health equity.
Learn about social determinants of health
Social determinants of health (SDOH) have a major impact on people’s health, well-being, and quality of life. Healthy People 2030 features objectives that highlight the importance of SDOH in improving health and reducing health disparities.
Check out our health literacy definitions and objectives
Our Healthy People 2030 definitions of personal and organizational health literacy offer a broader, more equitable perspective than the initiative’s previous definition. And a variety of Healthy People objectives are intended to improve health literacy and help people understand health information.
