SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This Notice is in accordance with the 21st Century Cures Act, NIH institutes are required to regularly update their strategic plans. The NIDDK’s ongoing Institute-wide strategic planning process will develop a broad vision for accelerating research into the causes, prevention, and treatment of diseases and conditions within the Institute’s mission. This overarching trans-NIDDK Strategic Plan will complement NIDDK’s disease-specific planning efforts. The Strategic Plan will have a 5year time horizon but will also include planning for longer term efforts that could be initiated within this time frame. External input has been integral to the strategic planning process. NIDDK established a Working Group of Council, comprised of 44 external scientists and patient advocates, including a subset of the members of NIDDK’s Advisory Council and others with expertise across the range of NIDDK’s mission areas. The Institute also invited broad external input with a public RFI in 2020, and received valuable comments from organizations, individual researchers, people living with diseases in NIDDK’s mission, and others. Based on input from the Working Group, the previous RFI, and Council, the Institute has prepared a draft of the Strategic Plan; the draft will be available for public comment through August 31, 2021 via the new RFI at the link above. NIDDK is committed to empowering a multidisciplinary research community; engaging diverse stakeholders; and leveraging discoveries of connections among diseases across NIDDK’s mission to improve prevention, treatment, and health equity—pursuing pathways to health for all. This theme is addressed throughout the draft strategic plan. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:08 Aug 16, 2021 Jkt 253001 The draft Strategic Plan includes five major sections: • Advance understanding of biological pathways and environmental contributors to health and disease • Advance pivotal clinical studies and trials for prevention, treatment, and cures in diverse populations • Advance research to disseminate and implement evidence-based prevention strategies and treatments in clinics and community settings, to improve the health of all people, more rapidly and more effectively • Advance stakeholder engagement— including patients and other participants as true partners in research • Promote efficient and effective ways to serve as a trusted steward of public resources and support research for diseases across our mission NIDDK invites comments on the draft Strategic Plan from: The scientific research community; patients and caregivers; health care providers and health advocacy organizations; scientific and professional organizations; federal agencies; and other stakeholders, including interested members of the public.
