This report is part of the Healthy People 2020 Law and Health Policy Project. The Project’s goal is to increase awareness of the roles law and policy play in improving health. The Project includes:

  • A series of reports, including this one focused on how laws and policies can improve public health
  • Webinars and other materials related to national health objectives 

Only some of the Healthy People 2020 goals will continue to be a focus in Healthy People 2030. However, all Healthy People 2020 objectives remain important areas of focus for the public health and disability communities.
