The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to solicit input from the broad community regarding opportunities and challenges in health and science communication research. The NIH is conducting planning activities to inform a potential Common Fund research program to support the development, assessment, and implementation of novel approaches to address health and science communication in a changing sociocultural landscape. Highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the urgent need for effective health communication cuts across all areas of health and disease, making this topic particularly suited for an NIH-wide research effort that aims for transformative impact. Research in this area is likely to be more impactful to the extent that it involves and considers community needs and interdisciplinary perspectives.

As part of the initial planning process, the NIH seeks to identify important research opportunities, challenges, methods, approaches, and technologies to enable the future study of health and science communication that can best be addressed through a concerted and coordinated research effort.
