  4. 4. This systematic approach to health improvement is composed of four key elements: <ul><li>Goals </li></ul><ul><li>Objectives </li></ul><ul><li>Determinants of Health </li></ul><ul><li>Health aspects </li></ul>

  8. 8. Objectives <ul><li>The Nation’s progress in achieving the two goals of Healthy People 2010 will be monitored through 467 objectives in 28 focus areas. </li></ul><ul><li>Many objectives focus on interventions designed to reduce or eliminate illness, disability, and premature death among individuals and communities. </li></ul><ul><li>Others focus on broader issues, such as improving access to quality health care, strengthening public health services, and improving the availability and dissemination of health-related information. </li></ul><ul><li>Each objective has a target for specific improvements to be achieved by the year 2010 </li></ul>
