Proposed Project: Evaluation of Healthy People 2010 Users—New—Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE)).

Abstract: Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE), Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) is seeking OMB approval to conduct a short survey using a self-administered questionnaire of state, local, and tribal health organizations. The survey will be administered through mail and respondents will have the option to complete the survey as a web-based electronic survey. Healthy People 2010 (HP2010) is an important Federal initiative that establishes national health promotion and disease prevention goals. HP2010 represents the third of a series of publications by HHS that specifies ten-year health objectives for the nation. Its overarching goals are to increase the quality and years of healthy life and eliminate health disparities.

HP2010 consists of 28 primary focus areas and 467 measurable health objectives designed to identify the most significant preventable threats to health and to establish public health priorities. The central theme of HP2010 focuses on the role of communities and community partnerships in promoting healthy living in the U.S. HP2010 is a powerful force in the effort to promote health and prevent disease in the U.S. The agenda reflects extensive consultation with over 350 national organizations, 250 state agencies, health experts, and the public.

HHS is eager to document the utilization of HP2010, and to seek input from key users on how the next iteration of the initiative, Healthy People 2020, could be improved to encourage greater involvement. This study will identify examples of effective strategies and approaches to using HP2010, and, where possible, the short-term results of those efforts.
