Developing Healthy People 2020

This article was cross-posted from the AIDS.gov blog. Miguel Gomez is AIDS.gov Director.

The Healthy People Initiative provides a framework to identify the most significant preventable threats to health and establishes national goals to reduce them. We asked Rear Admiral Penny Slade-Sawyer from the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion to explain why Healthy People is important to the HIV/AIDS community. She also told us how HHS is reaching out to gather input from the HIV/AIDS community to address health disparities and other issues as they set the goals and objectives for Healthy People 2020.
