Inputs: Partners


Partnerships are integral to the NIOSH Communication and Dissemination Cross-Sector Portfolio Program. Input from customers and stakeholder groups help in setting research priorities, conducting research and implementing interventions. Partners also add expertise or specialized experience to the research team, which benefits the research, analysis, interpretation, and communication of the results.

Our partners include:

State and Local
Public Partnerships
International Collaborations

The NIOSH Communications Program is linked with the NIOSH Global Collaborations Program and the two programs are housed in the same office. The NIOSH Global Collaborations Program works with international partners in organizations on research, training, documents, and technical assistance to benefit workers everywhere.

Professional and Trade Associations
Partnering with Other Portfolio Program Areas
