Strategic Plan of the Fogarty International Center at NIH

Fogarty's updated Strategic Plan will advance the global health research agenda by building on past and current Fogarty investments and successes in a way that responds to the changed landscape in global health. Fogarty investments will continue to advance the goals and sustain the leadership of the NIH and the U.S. government in biomedical research, while improving the health of Americans and populations across the globe.
