December 7, 2020 -- PAA and APC are pleased NIH has developed a strategic plan to help guide the significant resources that have been directed at the agency. Further, we are pleased that NIH is encouraging a broad spectrum of research beyond development of therapeutics and vaccines—as fundamental as those activities are to bringing an end to this devastating global pandemic. While the plan includes important dimensions of population and social science research, it could be strengthened in several important areas. Overall, we feel strongly that the plan needs to communicate clear support for the role of population research in this effort and to strengthen research initiatives toward understanding the long-term effects of the pandemic on the health and well-being of the U.S. population, and especially its diverse sub-populations.
