Healthy People 2010, a broad-based collaborative effort among Federal, State, and Territorial governments, as well as hundreds of private, public, and nonprofit organizations, has set national disease prevention and health promotion objectives to be achieved by the end of this decade (www.healthypeople.gov). The effort has two overarching goals: to increase the quality and years of healthy life and to eliminate health disparities. Healthy People 2010 features 467 science-based objectives and 10 Leading Health Indicators, which use a smaller set of issues and objectives to track progress toward meeting Healthy People 2010 goals. More information on the Leading Health Indicators, including links to Federal Web sites with data, planning tools, scientific information, and details about various programs are available at http://www.healthypeople.gov/lhi.

Listed in this handout are the 10 Leading Health Indicators, with corresponding sample resources available from the Federal government. The Federal consumer health information Web site, www.healthfinder.gov, is also a good starting point for more information on these topics.
