- Identifying and developing approaches to reduce stigma,
- Identifying and developing approaches to reduce health disparities,
- Understanding differences based on sex and gender, and
- Understanding interactions between substance use, HIV, and other conditions such as COVID-19.
Stakeholder feedback will be accepted through August 7, 2020. More information and the draft strategic plan is available on the NIH website.
