The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) is pleased to announce the next webinar in the Healthy People 2030 Webinar Series: The Importance of Preventive Services and Lessons Learned from the Pandemic. This webinar will take place on Tuesday, March 21 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm ET. To register, please visit the Healthy People 2030 Webinar Series Registration page.
During this one-hour webinar, presenters will provide an overview of the three featured Healthy People 2030 preventive services objectives, progress made to date for these objectives, and a presentation from the National Association of County and City Health Officials on their work with local health departments and lessons learned about preventive services uptake during the pandemic.
The three Healthy People 2030 objectives to be featured during the webinar include:
- IID-09: Increase the proportion of persons who are vaccinated annually against seasonal influenza (LHI)
Millions of people get seasonal flu every year. For most people, the flu is mild, but it can be very serious and even cause death. Yearly vaccination can help prevent seasonal flu. Sending vaccination reminders, making vaccines available in non-traditional places like workplaces, and reducing costs are important strategies for making sure more people get the flu vaccine.
- MICH-08: Increase the proportion of pregnant women who receive early and adequate prenatal care
Prenatal care is most effective when it starts early and continues throughout pregnancy. It can help prevent and address health problems in both mothers and babies. Interventions to increase access to health care can help more women get the prenatal care they need.
- STI-04: Reduce congenital syphilis
Untreated syphilis in pregnant women can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, and preterm birth. Babies born with syphilis are at higher risk for physical and developmental disabilities and death. Screening all pregnant women for syphilis and providing early treatment for women with syphilis and their sexual partner(s) during prenatal care can completely prevent congenital syphilis.
