NIH issued the 2021–2025 NIH-Wide Strategic Plan to guide NIH research efforts over the next five years. Building on the previous plan, the new plan seeks to advance the vision for biomedical research direction, capacity, and stewardship with a focus on five cross-cutting themes:
- Improving Minority Health and Reducing Health Disparities
- Enhancing Women’s Health
- Addressing Public Health Challenges Across the Lifespan
- Promoting Collaborative Science
- Leveraging Data Science for Biomedical Discovery
The Strategic Plan was developed through a collaborative process involving leadership and staff across the NIH and informed by input from key stakeholders, including the research community, professional societies, advocacy groups, and the public, via a Request for Information.
