The Healthy People Initiative is a comprehensive health promotion and disease prevention agenda designed to improve the health of all people in the United States. The latest iteration, Healthy People 2020, was launched in December 2010 and the final review of progress towards Healthy People 2010 goals was released at the end of 2011. The overarching goals of both Healthy People 2010 and 2020 call for the elimination of disparities among population subgroups in several domains, including race and ethnicity, gender, and socioeconomic status. The family planning area contains 16 objectives focused on informal and formal reproductive health education which were carried over from Healthy People 2010 to Healthy People 2020. This presentation will focus on the 10 reproductive health education objectives for which a final assessment of progress towards meeting national targets and progress towards eliminating racial/ethnic and income disparities for Healthy People 2010 can be calculated.

Analyses indicate that only a few of the reproductive health education objectives have either been met or are making progress towards the Healthy People 2010 targets and that racial and income disparities exist for several of these objectives.
