Healthy Alaskans 2020

Alaska’s state health improvement plan, Healthy Alaskans 2020 (HA2020) brings together partners from many sectors across the state to improve health and ensure health equity for all Alaskans through shared understanding, united efforts, and collective accountability.

Led jointly by the State of Alaska Department of Health and Social Services and Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, HA2020 is a framework of 25 health priorities for Alaska. Each priority has its own target for improvement to reach by 2020. This framework is based on the latest scientific evidence and the input of Alaskans from communities across the state.
