The purpose of Progress Reviews is to provide a venue for Federal agencies to report on
progress toward achieving the Healthy People 2010 goals and
objectives for each of the 28 focus areas. The review is a mechanism by
which the lead agencies for a particular focus area brief the Assistant
Secretary for Health on the latest data for the objectives and on
advances made toward the targets. It presents an opportunity for HHS and
other Federal agency representatives to discuss barriers that stand in
the way of achieving the targets and challenges them to explore
strategies for moving the Nation closer to meeting the goals for 2010.
Two rounds of reviews are planned for the decade for each of the focus
areas. The Assistant Secretary for Health chairs the reviews after
preparations have been completed by the agencies that have lead
responsibility for a given focus area.
The first of the year 2010 reviews–Access to Quality Health
Services–was held on June 4, 2002. Others follow, usually in
alphabetical order, on a monthly basis, if possible.
Additional information about the reviews is available on the National
Center for Health Statistics'
Healthy People home page;
supporting information for individual reviews is available from the [NCHS]
links following the titles in the list below.
