Background: Each decade since 1980, the Healthy People initiative has established and monitored national health objectives with 10-year targets to meet a broad range of health needs, encourage collaborations across sectors, guide individuals toward making informed health decisions, and measure the impact of disease prevention and health promotion activities. Launched August 2020, the current iteration—HP2030—leverages scientific insights and lessons from the past decade, along with the new knowledge of current data, trends, and innovations. HP2030 provides science- and evidence-based, 10-year national objectives for promoting health and preventing disease and sets targets to be achieved by the year 2030. It identifies public health priorities that address the major risks to health and well-being, and serves as a resource for preventing disease, promoting health, addressing SDOH, eliminating health disparities, and achieving health equity. HP2030 reflects input from the Secretary's Advisory Committee on National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention; the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine; a technical expert panel; subject matter experts from across HHS and other federal agencies; and members of the public via multiple public comment periods. On behalf of HHS, ODPHP leads and manages the development and implementation of HP2030.
The HP2030 framework and objectives outline the nation's plan for achieving the HP2030 vision of a society in which all people can achieve their full potential for health and well-being across the lifespan. HP2030's framework includes its vision, mission, overarching goals, guiding foundational principles, and is supported by over 350 specific measurable objectives with targets, LHIs, and OHMs. HP2030 serves as a resource and provides user-centered tools for disease prevention and health promotion, including science-based objectives, national and population-level data, evidence-based resources, and SDOH literature summaries. Detailed information about HP2030 is available at https://health.gov/healthypeople.
