FDA Supports Research to Reduce Health Disparities

The Office of Minority Health (OMH) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are collaborating to identify and address health disparities. Health disparities refer to differences in the health status of different groups of people. These differences may affect how often a disease occurs (frequency), how serious a disease is (severity), or how often a disease results in death (mortality) among certain groups. Health disparities exist for many conditions, including HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. Racial and ethnic minorities may be more likely to have these diseases or may be more likely to have serious effects from them. Read more about this research here: https://nnlm.gov/bhic/bq93
