NCCIH Strategic Plan: 2021–2025

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) is developing its fifth Strategic Plan, which will guide the Center’s research efforts and priorities over the next 5 years (Fiscal Years 2021–2025).

Draft Strategic Plan

From April 2020 through July 2020, stakeholders were offered several ways to contribute their thoughts and feedback. This included responding to our Request for Information using a web form or by email, and participating in Town Hall meetings.
