  • Description:
    Health, United States, 1980 is the fifth annual report on the health status of the Nation submitted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services to the President and Congress of the United States in compliance with Section 308 of the Public Health Service Act. It presents statistics concerning recent trends in the health care sector and detailed discussions of selected current health issues.

    This volume contains Prevention Profile, submitted by the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to the President and the Congress of the United States for the first time this year, and every third year hereafter, in compliance with Section 404 .of Title IV of the Health Services and Centers Amendments of 1978 (Public Law 95-626). This profile provides a data base for the effective implementation of the disease prevention and health promotion aspects of this legislation. It also serves to increase pub!ic awareness of the prevalence, incidence, and trends in preventable causes of death and disability in the United States. Although the legislation gave primary responsibility for preparation of the profile to the National Center for Health Statistics, it was developed in cooperation with the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. This first profile is an integral part of the Department’s Health Initiative which was outlined in Healthy People: The Surgeon General’s Report on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention and later described in more detail in Promoting Health/Preventing Disease: Objectives for the Nation. Future editions of Prevention ProjVe will serve as the basic mechanism for tracking these objectives.
