NICHD Strategic Plan 2020

This strategic plan was developed to guide the institute’s activities over the next five years. It proposes key scientific and public health priorities to advance research, methods to enhance scientific stewardship, and goals to support innovation in management practices and accountability.

This plan establishes ambitious goals to fulfill the scientific mandate of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). Given the institute’s critical mission and the ongoing advances in science and technology, effective teamwork will be vital to success. Collaborations within NICHD, with NIH colleagues, with federal partners, and with public and private entities will be essential to achieving these goals.
