Abstract

Many U.S. population groups--including racial and ethnic minority groups, such as African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, Asian Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Pacific Islanders, as well as some geographic and/or socioeconomic groups, such as low-income and rural populations--experience a disproportionately high burden of disease and mortality. These disparities prompted Congress in 2000 to pass legislation (P.L. 106-525) creating the National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NCMHD), which serves as a focal point for planning and coordinating of minority health and other health disparities research. This legislation also mandated that the NCMHD, working in coordination with the Institutes and Centers (ICs) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) develop a strategic plan for the reduction and ultimate elimination of health disparities. This plan represents the major priorities and range of activities that NIH will undertake to address health disparities, and as such reflects a guiding vision of how NIH will develop research priorities and expend resources to improve the health status of minorities and other health disparity populations.
