Healthy People 2020 (HP2020) is a national health agenda that communicates a vision and a strategy for improving the health of the Nation's population and achieving health equity. On December 2, 2010, Healthy People 2020 launched its ambitious, yet achievable, 10-year agenda for improving the Nation’s health. Healthy People 2020 is the result of a multi-year process that reflects input from a diverse group of individuals and organizations.
- HP2020 provides a framework to address risk factors and determinants of health
and the diseases and disorders that affect our communities. It enables state and
local public health departments and their partners to set priorities and assign
tasks to help achieve the objectives.
To showcase HP2020 activities in Virginia, the VDH has launched this webpage. Virginia’s HP2020 page will showcase VA specific initiatives that are using HP2020 goals and objectives, as well as list individuals and organizations that are interested in partnering to implement a HP2020 initiative.
