Abstract:

This report addresses the major performance and accountability challenges facing the Department of Health and Human Services HHS as it seeks to enhance the well-being of Americans by providing for effective health and human services and by fostering strong, sustained advances in the sciences underlying medicine, public health, and social services. It includes a summary of actions that HHS has taken and that are under way to address these challenges. It also outlines further actions that GAO believes are needed.
