National Institute of Child Health and Human Development

Name: National Institute of Child Health and Human Development
Description: The mission of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) is to ensure that every person is born healthy and wanted, that women suffer no harmful effects from the reproductive process, that all children have the chance to fulfill their potential to live healthy and productive lives free from disease or disability, and to ensure the health, productivity, independence, and well-being of all people through optimal rehabilitation.

In pursuit of this mission, the NICHD conducts and supports laboratory research, clinical trials, and epidemiological studies that explore health processes; examines the impact of disabilities, diseases, and defects on the lives of individuals; and sponsors training programs for scientists, doctors, and researchers to ensure that NICHD research can continue.

NICHD research programs incorporate the following concepts:

  • Events that happen prior to and throughout pregnancy, as well as during childhood, have a great impact on the health and well-being of children and adults.
  • Human growth and development is a life-long process that has many phases and functions.
  • Learning about the reproductive health of women and men and educating people about reproductive practices is important to both individuals and societies.
  • Developing medical rehabilitation interventions can improve the health and well-being of people with disabilities.
The Institute also supports research training across all its programs, with the intent of adding to the cadre of trained professionals who are available to conduct research in areas of critical public health concern. In addition, an overarching responsibility of the NICHD is to disseminate information that emanates from Institute research programs to researchers, practitioners, other health care professionals, and the public.
