Healthy People Consortium Meeting and Public Hearing
|The following issues were raised during the session on
Thursday afternoon for your consideration.
American Obesity Association
Breastfeeding and Lactation
Strategies that have failed in the past are reiterated in the document, would like to see document go one step further than laying out strategymajor problem is the lack of integration of one piece of health care promotion with another piece of health care promotion.
Specific Issue in
Environmental Health Section:
Recommendsconsultation with the American Association of Toxicologists for interpretation of data, that would allow refinement of the objectives to address serious morbidity and mortality issues. Environmental Health Objective, 5.19
NY State Representative:
As a 'consumer' the state is getting multiple products such as GPRA, etc. that are not linked to HP 2010 but are linked to his grants and funding sources. Anything with measures or requirements linked to his funding sources he will do and not HP 2010 if they're not coincident, e.g. performance measures for CDC; can't expect the use of HP 2010 unless the federal agencies' performance measurements are brought together. Issues of integration and alignment of federal agency data outcome objectives are not consistent.
Problem with consistency in performance measures in these agencies: population planning
Maternal Infant and Child Health
Specific obj. 10 (on pg. 1-15): 50% of activity should be physical (not certain how obj. reads) but issue is doesn't assume quality, it's an isolated variable that may not be related to quality.
Health challenges that
require more attention:
Overall sense that there are too many objectives and nothing is prioritized. Should reduce by at least 20% HP 2010 objectives, at a minimum.
Would like to see a chapter on Special Populations. It's difficult to figure out how to get information on special populations, what are the top 10 issues for each population.
American Association of Public
Objective: every state have requirement for physical exam upon entry into school
