Proposed Project: “Evaluate the Advancing Systems Improvements to Support Targets for Healthy People 2010 (ASIST2010) Program”—OMB No. 0990-NEW—Office on Women's Health.

Abstract: The Office on Women's Health is collecting data from 13 funded grantees and clients participating in ASIST2010, a three-year, cooperative agreement program. ASIST2010 uses a public health systems approach to improve performance on two or more of seven Healthy People 2010 (HP 2010) objectives that target women and/or men in six focus areas—cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke, access to quality health services, educational and community-based programs, nutrition and overweight, and physical activity and fitness. The goals of the ASIST2010 program are to: (1) Provide additional support to existing public health systems/collaborative partnerships to enable them to add a gender focus to HP 2010 objectives that track the health status of women and/or men, to help improve gender outcome in the targeted population and/or geographic area; (2) improve surveillance/information systems that allow tracking of program progress on HP 2010 objectives at the grantee level; and (3) develop and implement a plan to sustain the program after OWH funding ends. The sites participating in the ASIST2010 program represent four academic medical centers, three community-based organizations, two hospitals, two state health departments, one county health department, and one foundation.Start Printed Page 20706
