The National Institutes of Health has issued a Request for Information (RFI) regarding the Trans-NIH Strategic Plan for Research on Women’s Health. The Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) seeks input and suggestions from members of the basic, clinical, and translational research community as well as from advocacy and patient groups.
Specifically, the ORWH has asked for comments in the following areas:
- What are some ways that the scope of each theme [Expand the Exploration of Sex as a Biological Variable (SABV) in NIH Research, A Multi-Dimensional Approach to the Science of Women's Health, and Quality of Life and Disease Burden over the Life-Course] might be expanded or more narrowly focused to address the most important areas in research on women’s health?
- What topics would you recommend adding to the list of cross-cutting themes for research on women’s health?
- What big idea or audacious goal to improve women's health should be pursued by the NIH?
Responses to the RFI must be less than 300 words and submitted by November, 11th 2017. To submit a response to the RFI click here.
