Summary
The Office of Health Information, Health Promotion and Physical Fitness and Sports Medicine sponsored a series of 1-day consultation meetings for specific populations in 1980 to provide an opportunity for American populations to advise the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion on ways to ensure that the emerging national objectives for disease prevention and health promotion and the plans for implementing them respond to the health needs of these populations as well as to the general public. The specific populations included Asian, Black, Hispanic and Elderly Americans, and American Indians. Participants were asked to rank and offer advice on the 15 priority areas for which objectives have been developed (these are, for health promotion--reducing smoking and misuse of alcohol and drugs, exercise and fitness, improved nutrition, stress and violence control; for health protection--injury control, occupational safety and health, dental health protection, toxic and infectious agent control; for preventive health services--family planning, pregnancy and infant care, immunizations, sexually transmissible disease services, hypertension control); review strategies on ways to accomplish the health promotion objectives, recognizing social and economic circumstances that must be addressed simultaneously; and make recommendations based on these reviews for agencies within the Department of Health and Human Services, centered around the mechanisms available to the Department (grants to states and localities, research and demonstrations, monitoring and surveillance, dissemination, technical assistance, manpower development, and direct services). Overall comments and recommendations are summarized, and the views of participants in the sessions for each specific population are presented separately. Lists of invited participants and observers are appended; Federal and non-Federal participants were included
