Healthy People 2030 is a Department of Health and Human Services project to set data-driven national objectives to improve health and well-being over the next decade. It includes 355 core, measurable objectives.

Leading Health Indicators

Of the core objectives, a subset of 23 leading health indicators is meant to help organizations, communities, and states focus their resources and efforts to improve the health and well-being of all people. Four leading health indicators are directly related to the work of CDC’s Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity (DNPAO):

In addition to the leading health indicators, the objectives below are related to DNPAO’s work.

Research Objectives

Research objectives represent public health issues with a high health or economic burden or with significant disparities between population groups, but they are not yet associated with evidence-based interventions.

Overall Health and Well–Being Measures

Overall health and well-being measures are broad, outcome measures intended to assess the Healthy People 2030 vision — a society in which all people can achieve their full potential for health and well-being across the lifespan. Unlike the leading health indicators and core objectives, these measures do not have targets.
