The Healthy People 2020 development process is intended to enable stakeholders to move the nation towards 10-year targets for the health of the nation. This project helped to further Healthy People 2020 program implementation, which includes strategies, interventions and activities and resources.
This project helped identify specific interactive tools and resources needed to assist stakeholders from various levels of government and nongovernmental sectors in implementing and achieving Healthy People 2020 goals and objectives. For example, access to data to track and monitor progress is now available on the DATA2020 tool on www.healthypeople.gov . Similarly, people working in the field whether at the community, state or national level benefit from having model programs they can use and tailor to meeting their specific needs. The Evidence-based Resources tool and Sharing Library with its Interactive Map, also on www.healthypeople.gov , provides information on interventions and resources that can help communities address important health needs and improve health.
