Review the Planning Process

To inform and support the strategic planning effort, NICHD established a Working Group of representatives from the extramural research community, health care sector, patient and advocacy communities, and NICHD and other federal agencies. The group is charged with making recommendations on the following:

  • Scientific foci or themes for NICHD
  • Strategic priorities within each focus area
  • Aims and objectives to inform implementation of the strategic plan
  • Aligning staff and organizational resources to optimize implementation of the plan
  • Leveraging partnerships, training programs, and communications strategies to advance the plan
  • Strategies for assessing progress toward achieving the goals and objectives of the plan
