Established in 1979, the Healthy People initiative establishes ten-year, science-based, disease prevention and health promotion objectives and targets to improve the health of the Nation.  Healthy People 2020 (HP2020), the fourth iteration of the initiative, has now reached the midpoint of the decade. This midpoint is an opportunity to assess the progress towards the HP2020 targets over the first half of the decade and determine whether there are trends that need to be reversed. The results of the assessment will help to guide the development of Healthy People 2030 (HP2030) by highlighting issues, policies, and partners that deserve further consideration and advancement.

The development of HP2030 is a complex process that will build upon the work, successes, and lessons learned from previous iterations of Healthy People to ensure the integrity of the objectives, consensus, and transparency. The consideration of Social Determinants of Health and Foundational Health Measures are critical to ensuring HP2030 is applicable across multiple environments. In order to be effective in this arena while concurrently adapting HP2030 to reflect technological advancements, we anticipate adopting a number of strategies to engage a broad range of stakeholders and better integrate this initiative within multiple policy fields. 

This presentation will look at effective strategies to develop HP2030 over the next several years. Recognizing that multiple partners and stakeholders should be engaged in this process, the presentation will allow time for audience feedback into the process and recommendations for deeper engagement.
