DRC Measures Pertaining to Healthy People 2020 Objectives

Over the past three decades, the United States Department of Health & Human Services has set forth 10-year national objectives for improving the health of all Americans.  On December 2, 2010 the most recent agenda for improving the nation’s health was launched: Healthy People 2020.  Healthy People 2020 goals were developed over multiple years and reflect input from a broad range of individuals and organizations.  They establish benchmarks and help monitor progress to encourage between-sector collaboration, help individuals make informed health decisions and measure the impact of prevention activities.  Many items from the National Survey of Children’s Health and the National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs relate to Healthy People objectives and can be used to help establish a baseline and monitor progress towards improving the health and well-being of children and adolescents in the United States.  Learn more about Healthy People at www.healthypeople.gov
