HHS Strategic Goals and Objectives - FY 2001 . Strategic Goals


In a society that is diverse in culture, language, and ethnicity, HHS manages an array of programs that aim to eliminate disparities in health status and access to health services and that increase opportunities for disadvantaged individuals to work and lead productive lives. These programs have strong foundations in basic and applied science, and are continuously improved through the development of new knowledge and its application. By addressing public health and health needs of vulnerable populations, promoting child and adolescent development, ensuring economic self-sufficiency, and assistance to working families, and financing health and social services, the Department seeks to close the gaps in health status and improve economic opportunities.
