2021HCA16 Healthy Youth Survey
The Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) is initiating an Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit proposals from firms interested in participating on a project to prepare for and administer the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey (HYS), website creation and create and disseminate electronic HYS results.
The HYS is a collaborative effort among several state agencies including HCA; the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI); the Washington State Department of Health (DOH); and the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB). Representatives of these agencies serve as members of the Healthy Youth Survey Planning Committee (HYSPC), which guides every aspect of survey development, implementation, and reporting. The HYS measures health-risk behaviors that contribute to morbidity, mortality, and social problems of youth. The survey results serve as important needs assessment data and offer insight into the effectiveness of statewide prevention and health promotion initiatives.
