Since 1979, Healthy People has functioned as the public health roadmap for the nation. A comprehensive set of national 10-year health objectives, Healthy People serves as a foundation for prevention and wellness activities for the federal government, states and communities, as well as many public and private sector agencies and organizations throughout the U.S. A fluid document that has evolved as the nationâ€™s public health priorities have changed, Healthy People undergoes an extensive stakeholder feedback process with each new iteration. More than 8,000 comments (including those from NASW) were considered in the drafting of the Healthy People 2020 objectives, which were released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in December 2010.
