Healthy People 2030

Healthy People helps foster a shared vision of public health. It establishes national priorities every 10 years to guide jurisdiction planning and data collection, which helps align regional goals and support funding opportunities available for the related objectives. From 2020 to 2030, Healthy People increased (or enhanced or strengthened) its focus on well-being and included five major updates: Leading Health Indicators (LHIs) organized by life stage, new Overall Health and Well-Being Measures (OHMs), new objective types, cross-cutting topic areas, and a reduction in the number of measurable objectives. Healthy People is supported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Disease Prevention and Health Improvement (HHS ODPHP).

Products and Resources

Over the last several years, ASTHO and HHS ODPHP have worked together toward common goals through a cooperative agreement to support, equip, and advocate for implementation of Healthy People.

Topic Areas

Healthy People 2030 is organized into cross-cutting topics and topic areas. Each topic area has a set of objectives with related measures and evidence-based resources. ASTHO has a wide variety of resources to help state and territorial health agencies (S/THAs) meet the National objectives. The below table highlights databases with searchable examples, planning tools, and examples from S/THAs.
