To help inform the STRIVE Action Plan, NICHD has many activities planned related to its three themes.
Broad involvement in these activities from various populations and communities allows for a more comprehensive Action Plan. NICHD invites individuals and groups to participate in as many activities as possible to ensure a wide range of perspectives are considered.
Check out an update on STRIVE from the June meeting of the National Advisory Child Health and Human Development Council.
