Office of Dietary Supplements Strategic Plan

The Office of Dietary Supplements has released a strategic plan for the years 2017–2021 titled: Strengthening Knowledge and Understanding of Dietary Supplements, available on the ODS website. This document presents a refreshed set of goals, strategies, and activities that ODS plans for the next 5 years. It also provides a review of ODS activities and accomplishments from the years 2010-2016, including examples of ODS collaborative projects and programs and summaries of its extramural investments.

The Strategic Plan was shaped by the thoughtful input, comments, and advice received from stakeholder communities throughout the federal government, academia, the dietary supplement industry, consumer advocacy and education groups, and interested consumers.
