The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) has announced the release of the NIH-Wide Minority Health and Health Disparities Strategic Plan 2021-2025: Taking the Next Steps. The plan’s goals for advancing minority health and health disparities research and promoting health equity are in three categories:
- Scientific Research, such as advancing the understanding of the root causes of health disparities,
- Research-Sustaining Activities, such as strengthening the national research capacity to address minority health and health disparities, especially in minority-serving institutions, and
- Outreach, Collaboration, and Dissemination, such as cultivating and expanding the community of researchers and advocates in the area of minority health and health disparities.
Over the next five years, NIH will evaluate the agency’s progress in meeting the strategic plan’s objectives. View the NIH-Wide Minority Health and Health Disparities Strategic Plan 2021-2025.
