Guides national research on public health. Establishes accountability requiring all PHS grants to demonstrate support of Healthy People objectives.

10 Healthy People 2020: New Topic Areas Life stages ▫Adolescent Health, Early and Middle Childhood, Older Adults Blood disorders and Blood Safety Dementia, including Alzheimer's Disease Genomics Global Health Healthcare-Associated Infections LGBT Health Preparedness Health-Related Quality of Life and Well-being Sleep Health Social Determinants of Health

11 Overview of Health Disparities Achieve health equity, eliminate disparities, and improve the health of all groups. Definition: a particular type of health difference that is closely linked with social, economic, and/or environmental disadvantage

12 For all Americans, other influences on health include the availability of and access to: A high-quality education Nutritious food Decent and safe housing Affordable, reliable public transportation Culturally sensitive health care providers Health insurance Clean water and nonpolluted air

13 Disparities by race and ethnicity African Americans and American Indians/Alaska Natives have higher rates of infant mortality and diabetes. A higher percentage of Asian Americans live in poverty than do non-Hispanic whites. Native Hawaiians/Other Pacific Islanders have much higher rates of cancer and hepatitis. Hispanics have higher rates of obesity, HIV/AIDS, and smoking.

14 Disparities by gender Women have higher rates of obesity, arthritis, osteoporosis, some mental disorders, and autoimmune diseases, such as lupus and multiple sclerosis than men. Women, especially those in their childbearing years, continue to be the fastest growing segment of the population to be infected with HIV or diagnosed with AIDS. An estimated 25 percent of people living with HIV in the United States are women. Because women can experience the symptoms of a heart attack differently than men, they may be misdiagnosed, or women may not realize they are having a heart attack until it is too late.

15 Disparities by gender More men die from heart disease, cancer, influenza and pneumonia, chronic liver disease, diabetes, and AIDS than women. More men die prematurely from violence (homicide and suicide) and accidents than women. Men abuse alcohol and drugs at higher rates than women. More men than women smoke tobacco. Men are more likely to delay routine checkups and ignore symptoms of a health problem than women.

16 Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Populations LGBT youth are 2 to 3 times more likely to attempt suicide. LGBT youth are more likely to be homeless. Lesbians are less likely to get preventive services for cancer. Elderly LGBT individuals face additional barriers to health because of isolation and a lack of social services and culturally competent providers. LGBT populations have some of the highest rates of tobacco use

17 Persons With Disabilities or Special Health Care Needs Adults with disabilities are more likely to be obese or overweight and have high blood pressure and high cholesterol than other adults. The rates of substance abuse among people with disabilities are about 2 to 4 times greater than that of the general population. Research has shown that women with disabilities have a higher risk for emotional, physical, and sexual abuse than do women without disabilities.

18 Geographic Location: Rural Residents Rural residents face a number of barriers in accessing quality health services, and they experience significant health disparities. Compared with their urban counterparts, rural residents were more likely to: Report being in fair to poor health Live with a chronic disease such as diabetes Die from heart disease Be admitted to a hospital for uncontrolled diabetes

19 Geographic Location: Urban Residents Concentrated poverty Higher levels of indoor and outdoor pollution, such as noise and air pollution from motor vehicle traffic and industry, and indoor exposure to allergens, carcinogens, and lead Overcrowding, leading to higher rates of infectious diseases

20 Vision: Create an engaging, user-centered Web site that gives new and existing users of Healthy People a platform to learn, collaborate, plan, and implement strategies to reach the 2020 objectives. Healthy People 2020 Online
