Healthy People 2020 is the US government’s set of national goals to prevent disease and promote health. There are hundreds of objectives in 42 areas, including Cancer, Physical Activity, Diabetes, Nutrition and Weight, Tobacco Use, Substance Abuse, Sexually Transmitted Diseases, Immunizations, Chronic Kidney Disease and more. New topics & goals for genomics, global health, dementia/Alzheimer’s, adolescents, older adults, preparedness, sleep, healthcare-associated infections and others. Interesting objective is to reduce the number of measles cases from the baseline of 115 (2008) to 30 by 2020. In 2020, the CDC reported 13 cases of measles, the lowest in 10 years. For the most recent full year 2021, 49 measles cases were reported. In many cases, the Healthy People 2020 goals show data only through 2018; the goal is adjusted to count only “US-acquired cases”. Influenza vaccination data and goals are also included in this set. Healthy People 2030 objectives are now available.
