Strategic Plan, FY 2022 – 2026

Public Consultation on the Draft HHS Strategic Plan FY 2022 - 2026

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is seeking public comment on its draft Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2022 - 2026. The draft Strategic Plan is provided as part of the strategic planning process under the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act of 2010 (GPRA-MA) (P.L. 111-352) to ensure that HHS stakeholders are given an opportunity to comment on this plan.

This document articulates how the Department will achieve its mission through five strategic goals. These five strategic goals are (1) Protect and Strengthen Equitable Access to High Quality and Affordable Health Care, (2) Safeguard and Improve National and Global Health Conditions and Outcomes, (3) Strengthen Social Well-being, Equity, and Economic Resilience, (4) Restore Trust and Accelerate Advancements in Science and Research for All, and (5) Advance Strategic Management to Build Trust, Transparency, and Accountability. Each goal is supported by objectives and strategies.

The strategic planning consultation process is an opportunity for the Department to refine and strengthen the HHS Strategic Plan FY 2022 – 2026. We look forward to receiving your comments.

Every four years, HHS updates its strategic plan, which describes its work to address complex, multifaceted, and evolving health and human services issues. An agency strategic plan is one of three main elements required by the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993 (P.L. 103-62) and the GPRA Modernization Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-352). An agency strategic plan defines its mission, goals, objectives, and how it will measure its progress in addressing specific national problems over a four-year period.

All OpDivs and StaffDivs within HHS contributed to the development of this draft of the HHS Strategic Plan FY 2022 – 2026 (Strategic Plan), as reflected in its strategic goals, objectives, and strategies.


Through November 7, you can comment by email, fax, and mail. We look forward to hearing from you.
