The Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2014‒2018 (PDF - 3MB) charts new directions for the Office over the next five years. Developed with input from a variety of stakeholders, the plan includes activities to strengthen existing programs and develop new initiatives to advance the prevention research agenda at the NIH and improve the public health.

The plan is centered around six strategic priorities:

STRATEGIC PRIORITY I
Systematically monitor NIH investments in prevention research and assess the progress and results of that research.

STRATEGIC PRIORITY II
Identify prevention research areas for investment or expanded effort by the NIH.

STRATEGIC PRIORITY III
Promote the use of the best available methods in prevention research and support the development of better methods.

STRATEGIC PRIORITY IV
Promote collaborative prevention research projects and facilitate coordination of such projects across the NIH and with other public and private entities.

STRATEGIC PRIORITY V
Identify and promote the use of evidence-based interventions and promote the conduct of implementation and dissemination research in prevention.

STRATEGIC PRIORITY VI
Increase the visibility of prevention research at the NIH and across the country.
