Input: NIOSH Strategic Goals

The Global Collaborations Program embraces the third strategic goal of the NIOSH Strategic Plan 2010 – 2015:

Enhance global occupational safety and health through international collaborations
  • Take a leadership role in developing a global network of occupational health centers.
  • Investigate alternative approaches to reducing occupational illness and injury and provide technical assistance to put solutions in place.
  • Build global professional capacity to address occupational hazards through training, information sharing and research experience.

NIOSH Global Collaborations Program Goals

The strategic goals of the NIOSH Global Collaborations Program guide research and partnership efforts with the NORA Sectors, Cross Sectors, and international partners over the next decade. These goals incorporate the needs of the NORA program and the needs of NIOSH as a key leader in global occupational safety and health.

Strategic Goals for Intramural Research

The first Strategic Goal of the NIOSH Global Collaborations Program is, in fact, the third strategic goal of the NIOSH Strategic Plan 2010–2015: Goal 3: Enhance global occupational safety and health through international collaborations.

Six Strategic Goals have been developed by the Global Collaborations Program in partnership with NIOSH experts and with other NIOSH Sector and Cross-Sector Programs:

  • Strategic Goal 1: Enhance global occupational safety and health through international collaborations.
  • Strategic Goal 2: Reduce silicosis among miners, construction workers, and other workers globally by providing technical assistance to reduce exposures, by assisting with capacity building to develop occupational health professionals, laboratories and personal protective equipment programs, and by training to diagnose existing cases.
  • Strategic Goal 3: Global partners will collaborate to develop strategies for reducing occupational road traffic injuries worldwide
  • Strategic Goal 4: Reduce HIV/AIDS and other bloodborne pathogens among healthcare workers through global partnerships, as well as through implementing and evaluating, and coordinating training programs.
  • Strategic Goal 5: Prevent worker illness globally from exposure to nanomaterials by sharing information.
  • Strategic Goal 6: Improve global mining safety and health by collaborating with international partners to develop, transfer, or otherwise apply technology, training, and best practices to mining and mineral processing.

Strategic Goals for Extramural Research

The Global Collaborations Program selected the following as priority goals that are particularly suited for extramural research during fiscal years 2014-16:

  • Strategic Goal 1: Enhance global occupational safety and health through international collaborations.
  • Strategic Goal 2: Reduce silicosis among miners, construction workers, and other workers globally by providing technical assistance to reduce exposures, by assisting with capacity building to develop occupational health professionals, laboratories and personal protective equipment programs, and by training to diagnose existing cases.
  • Strategic Goal 3: Global partners will collaborate to develop strategies for reducing occupational road traffic injuries worldwide.
  • Strategic Goal 4: Reduce HIV/AIDS and other bloodborne pathogens among healthcare workers through global partnerships, as well as through implementing and evaluating, and coordinating training programs.
