Joint Program Committees

As directed by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs [OASD(HA)], the Defense Health Agency, Research, Development, and Acquisition (DHA RDA) Directorate manages and executes the Defense Health Program (DHP) Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E) appropriation. 

The RDA is assisted in this mission by six Joint Program Committees, or JPCs, which consist of Department of Defense (DoD) and non-DoD medical and military technical experts. These experts work through coordinated efforts to translate guidance into research and development needs. They also have key responsibilities for making funding recommendations and providing program management support.
