Geee Posted July 29, 2014 Share Posted July 29, 2014 Human Events: WASHINGTON, D.C. — A federal program has designs on making Americans “Healthy People.” Amid rising obesity rates and a binge of political correctness, the government initiative is getting broader. Healthy People 2000 — launched by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services — was initially tasked to reduce health disparities among Americans. By 2010, the mission was expanded to eliminate, not just reduce, health disparities. Healthy People 2020 is moving the goalposts yet again — “to achieve health equity, eliminate disparities, and improve the health of all groups.” According to the HHS directive, “Achieving health equity requires valuing everyone equally with focused and ongoing societal efforts to address avoidable inequalities, historical and contemporary injustices, and the elimination of health and health care disparities.” Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
