The United States Public Health Service established goals in 1990 for the year 2000. These goals served to guide public health policy and funding allocations for research and promotions. While many goals were met, a large number in many of the categories were not met or were actually farther from the target. The information learned from these public health efforts will improve future public health initiatives. For example, new goals have now been established for the year 2010. The goals listed in each of the concepts reflect the updated goals from this document. For further information check the following web site.
