What Is Its History?
Healthy People 2010 builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades. The 1979 Surgeon General's Report,
Healthy People laid the foundation for a
national prevention agenda. The 1980 Promoting Health/Preventing
Disease: Objectives for the Nation, and Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives,
both established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of State and community plans.
