The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is soliciting written comments on the Healthy People 2030 proposed framework, including the vision, mission, overarching goals, plan of action, and foundational principles.

Every 10 years, through the Healthy People initiative, HHS leverages scientific insights and lessons from the past decade along with new knowledge of current data, trends, and innovations to develop the next iteration of national health promotion and disease prevention objectives. Healthy People provides science-based, 10-year national objectives for promoting health and preventing disease. Since 1979, Healthy People has set and monitored national health objectives to meet a broad range of health needs, encouraged collaborations across sectors, guided individuals toward making informed health decisions, and measured the impact of our prevention and health promotion activities. Healthy People 2030 will reflect assessments of major risks to health and wellness, changing public health priorities, new knowledge in prevention, and emerging issues related to our nation's health preparedness.
