Healthy People 2000: Y2K is Here - How Did We Do?

Healthy People 2000 - the nation's disease prevention and health promotion agenda - was launched in 1990. The initiative contained over 300 objectives in 22 health areas that targeted improvements in health outcomes, reductions in risk behaviors, and improvements in the delivery of health care services for all Americans. Now - at the close of the decade - this session will summarize final progress made towards the Year 2000 objectives by examining objectives for a number of select population groups that cut across the 22 health areas. These groups include people with low income, age-related life stages, women, people with disabilities, and racial and ethnic minorities. The most recent tracking data available will be presented to determine which objectives have reached their Year 2000 target. This session will preview data that will be published early next year in the final Healthy People 2000 tracking report - the Healthy People 2000 Review, 2000
