Take Care New York 2020

TCNY 2020 (PDF) is the City’s blueprint for giving everyone the chance to live a healthier life. Its goal is twofold — to improve every community’s health, and to make greater strides in groups with the worst health outcomes, so that our city becomes a more equitable place for everyone. Unlike previous Take Care New York plans, TCNY 2020 looks at traditional health factors as well as social factors, like how many people in a community graduated from high school or go to jail.

To begin building partnerships around TCNY 2020, the Health Department held Community Consultations in dozens of neighborhoods across the City during fall and winter of 2015-2016. We spoke with more than 800 New Yorkers about TCNY 2020 goals and local priorities for change. The input that we received at these public events will help us collaborate with communities to plan for action. The top priorities identified by community members that attended each event.
