Opportunity for Public Comment

In an effort to make the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations clearer and its processes more transparent, the Task Force started posting draft Recommendation Statements online for public comment in 2010. To further enhance its work, the Task Force began inviting public comment on all its draft Research Plans in December 2011 and its draft Evidence Reviews in March 2013.
