Healthy People 2010

The AOA is committed to Healthy People 2010. Healthy People 2010 is an initiative developed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that established a 10 year goal to improve the health of Americans. The Health Eyes Healthy People program is an initiative led by the AOA in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to work on specific objectives to improve the vision status of the American public. In 2002 AOA was only one of 7 national associations to have an Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with DHHS and one of even few organizations to have the MOU renewed in June 2006 for three more years.
