Grant Description

Purpose. The overarching goal of this FOA is to solicit innovative research addressing elements that eliminates health disparities. Research focused on disease and/or conditions that disproportionately affect racial/ethnic minorities is a growing field and has been employed lately in understanding dynamics contributing to health disparities. Funding for this FOA will support investigators who propose to conduct health disparities research using its principles to improve health inequities. The research should take into account the characteristics of health systems and health seeking behaviors that propagate disparities. The focus of targeted research population is diverse. It includes ethnic racial minorities, medically underserved and vulnerable populations, and rural and low-income populations. Several approaches could be used when designing programs; specific interventions may include but are not limited to biological, behavioral change strategies, lifestyle factors, environmental, social and structural barriers, economics, institutional and cultural, family influences, delivery system interventions, medical procedures and regimens (including alternative therapy), medical and assistive devices and technologies. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the NIH Research Project Grant (R01) award mechanism. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. NCMHD has designated approximately $1.9 million in total costs to fund 5 or more awards in FY10, contingent upon the submission of sufficient number of scientifically meritorious applications.
