In this section we describe our strategies for accomplishing our strategic goals and objectives. In addition, we describe the research-based evidence for the establishment of each HHS strategic goal and the objectives that contribute to its achievement. Legislation and/or regulations required to accomplish objectives are presented as part of the strategies. A discussion of resources that will support these strategies is found in Appendix F, and a matrix relating the Department's strategic objectives to programs is shown in Appendix J.
The design and implementation of the program strategies is a process that is influenced by the lessons learned through program evaluation. Appendix E provides an in-depth discussion of program evaluations and the Department's upcoming plans for program evaluations to look at the effectiveness of the implementation strategies.
