People with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) have begun to participate in their own health promotion and disease prevention activities and are learning how to advocate for their own health. Over the next decade, a coordinated approach to research, practice, and education, along with a policy agenda for health and wellness activities, can result in improved health and wellness outcomes for people with IDD.
