ODP Strategic Plan FY 2019-2023

The ODP Strategic Plan FY 2019-2023, Prevention Research: Building a Healthier Future (PDF) includes six strategic priorities that will guide the activities of the Office over the next 5 years. In 2022, the ODP elevated health disparities from a cross-cutting theme to a seventh strategic priority. The priorities are interconnected, allowing each area to leverage staff expertise and build upon prevention related resources, tools, and initiatives developed across the ODP.

Spotlight on 2022

We are excited to share our Spotlight on 2022 (PDF) annual report highlighting a few of ODP's accomplishments last year. The report summarizes key projects related to each of ODP’s strategic priorities and outlines how they impact public health.

Cross-Cutting Themes

These cross-cutting themes (PDF) represent areas of opportunity for the ODP to serve as a catalyst for developing, coordinating, and implementing new activities and to better integrate disease prevention into trans-NIH initiatives.

  • Leading causes and risk factors for premature morbidity and mortality
  • Dissemination and implementation research
  • Health disparities (elevated to become the strategic priority "Address Health Disparities" in 2022)

Strategic Priorities

The priorities represent the breadth of ODP activities and allow for emerging areas of opportunity to be incorporated into Office activities. It is anticipated that outcomes associated with each objective will contribute to the overall success of the Office in achieving its vision.
