NIH Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) Program Office Strategic Plan

ECHO NIH Program Office Creates Strategic Plan

The Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) Program is an extramurally funded program maintained within the Office of the Director at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The ECHO Program has developed a five-year strategic plan to assess the program’s overall direction and to focus its priorities. This strategic plan articulates the mission and vision of the Program Office and will be its roadmap for success for 2020–2024.

The purpose of this strategic plan is to guide the ECHO Program Office to implement a strategic direction for the next phase of its work, including opportunities to assess staff roles and re-prioritize activities; development of program office strategic goals, objectives, and key measures of success; and information gathering and analysis for continuous improvement.
