This assessment examined the Healthy People Consortium, which includes representatives from State health agencies, as a mechanism for engaging external stakeholders in implementing Healthy People 2010 goals and objectives. Information and input from various Healthy People stakeholders, including representatives of State agencies, was collected during a State Healthy People Coordinators meeting convened in Washington, DC, December 3, 2002. It yielded important information on: (1) what strategies have or have not enhanced the achievement of Healthy People 2010 goals and objectives; (2) how Consortium members use Healthy People 2010, and (3) how strategies can improve the usefulness of Healthy People 2010.
