New NIMHD Strategic Plan

The NIMHD has released the NIH Minority Health and Health Disparities Strategic Plan 2021-2025.

The plan’s goals for advancing minority health and health disparities research are in three categories:

  1. Scientific Research, such as advancing the understanding of the causes of health disparities.
  2. Research-Sustaining Activities, such as strengthening the national research capacity to address minority health and health disparities, especially in minority-serving institutions.
  3. Outreach, Collaboration, and Dissemination, such as cultivating and expanding the community of researchers and advocates in the area of minority health and health disparities.

This strategic plan was developed through comprehensive engagement across NIH Institutes, Offices, and Centers and externally with experts and communities impacted by health disparities.

NIH’s 27 Institutes and Centers contribute to science and support training, workforce development, capacity building, and other activities that advance the field. This strategic plan demonstrates the commitment of all of NIH to improving minority health and reducing health disparities.
