In 2010 December, the department of health and human services began Healthy People 2020.
This is an initiative that is aimed at ensuring that all people have access to good health.
It is an initiative that was developed with the main goal of ensuring that there is equity in access of good health services for all people.
It was developed based on the fact that there is a high population of people who do not access good medical services because they are disadvantaged in one way or the other.
Healthy people 2020 also aims to reduce the deaths that result from preventable disease pr other hazards that can be prevented.
So, what are the goals of Healthy People 2020?
