FAIRBANKS — Healthy Alaskans 2020 released its 25 Leading Health Indicators this week. The indicators chronicle the most critical health priorities in Alaska, according to the group, which is a joint effort between the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services and the Alaska Native health Consortium.

The indicators are meant to help guide efforts in the state during the next decade to improve health for every Alaskan. To create the list, Healthy Alaskans 2020 collaborated for 10 months with partners around the state and survey data from more than 3,000 respondents around Alaska.

The list of indicators includes reducing cancer rates, suicide, interpersonal violence and sexual assault. Survey results showed Alaskans also hoped to see alcohol, tobacco and drug abuse reduced, as well as an increase in vaccination.

The entire list of indicators can be found online at
