NIH Strategic Plan for HIV and HIV-Related Research
OAR seeks input: OAR has released a Request for Information (RFI) to inform development of the FY 2026‒2030 NIH Strategic Plan for HIV and HIV-Related Research. Learn more, and provide your feedback by March 28, 2024.
NIH Strategic Plans for HIV and HIV-Related Research guide the largest public investment in HIV research, building on scientific progress and opportunities for advancing research to end to the HIV pandemic. These plans provide a roadmap for the NIH HIV/AIDS research program, ensuring that funds are allocated in accordance with established NIH scientific research priorities.
OAR leads the effort across NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices to establish HIV research priorities and develop this strategic plan. The priorities and plan are informed by input from a broad range of interested parties, including researchers, health care professionals, advocates and health advocacy organizations, scientific or professional organizations, government agencies, and community members.
Currently, NIH HIV research is guided by the FY 2021-2025: NIH Strategic Plan for HIV and HIV-Related Research. OAR is working on the development of the next strategic plan. Find previous plans in this archive.
FY 2021-2025: NIH Strategic Plan for HIV and HIV-Related Research
The current plan, FY 2021-2025: NIH Strategic Plan for HIV and HIV-Related Research, focuses on four strategic goals:
- Advance rigorous and innovative research to end the HIV pandemic and improve the health of people with, at risk for, or affected by HIV across the lifespan.
- Ensure that the NIH HIV research portfolio remains flexible and responsive to emerging scientific opportunities and discoveries.
- Promote dissemination and implementation of research discoveries for public health impact across agencies, departments, and stakeholders within the U.S. Government and globally.
- Build human resource and infrastructure capacity to enhance sustainability of HIV research discovery and the implementation of findings by a diverse and multidisciplinary workforce.
