The Department of Health and Human Services Draft FY 2007-2012 Strategic Plan is provided as part of the strategic planning process under the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) to ensure that Agency stakeholders are given an opportunity to comment on this plan.

This document integrates the Department's mission into a presentation of performance goals under four strategic goals. These four strategic goals are (1) Health Care: Improve the safety, quality, affordability and accessibility of health care, including behavioral health care and long-term care; (2) Public Health Promotion and Protection, Disease Prevention and Emergency Preparedness: Prevent and control disease, injury, illness and disability across the lifespan, and protect the public from infectious, occupational, environmental and terrorist threats; (3) Human Services: Promote the economic and social well-being of individuals, families and communities, and (4) Scientific Research and Development: Advance scientific and biomedical research and development related to health and human services. The strategic planning process is an opportunity for the Department to further refine and strengthen the strategic goal structure currently in place. For comparison purposes, the current HHS Strategic Plan FY 2004-2009 can be viewed at​hhsplan/​.

The Department has made significant progress in its strategic and performance planning efforts. As we build on this progress we look forward to receiving your comments by June 15. The text of the draft strategic plan is available in a “pdf” downloadable format through the Department of Health and Human Services Web site:
