NIH HEAL Initiative

About The Helping to End Addiction Long-term® Initiative, or NIH HEAL Initiative®, is an aggressive, trans-agency effort to speed scientific solutions to stem the national opioid public health crisis. Almost every NIH Institute and Center is accelerating research to address this public health emergency from all angles.
The initiative is funding hundreds of projects nationwide. Researchers are taking a variety of approaches to tackle the opioid epidemic through:
• Understanding, managing, and treating pain
• Improving treatment for opioid misuse and addiction
How we share on the Vivli Platform Researchers whose studies are funded by NIH HEAL Initiative® can meet their data sharing obligations as part of the initiative by archiving their data on Vivli. For more information: https://heal.nih.gov/data/complying-heal-data-sharing-policy
