      In December 2010, the Department of Health and Human Services launched Healthy People 2020, a comprehensive, nationwide health promotion and disease prevention agenda. Healthy People 2020 builds on initiatives pursued over the past three decades. The 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, and Healthy People 2000, Healthy People 2010: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of State and community plans. ECHD supports and implements these plans at the local level through the Community Health & Wellness Education Program. Our goals are to help reduce health care costs for individuals and businesses, improve the health of Ector County residents by providing information to the community, and educate the public regarding health issues and potential health hazards that can impact the community. This is done through our partnerships with other agencies and via community outreach activities.
