Funding Announcement: NLM Information Resource Grants to Reduce Health Disparities (G08 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Posted by on August 20th, 2018 Posted in: NLM/NIH News

Earliest Submission Date: September 22, 2018

Purpose: The NLM Information Resource Grants to Reduce Health Disparities program is focused on putting research knowledge into practice by providing information resources tailored to meet the needs of health disparity populations and their health care providers. Many factors influence use of information in health decisions, including physical access factors (such as availability of libraries or Internet connectivity in the context of a health visit or personal health decision), personal access factors (such as readability, understandability and presentation format of health information), and factors related to social determinants of health.

A project can develop and deploy a new information resource or service, or expand and improve an existing resource or service in order to meet the needs of a health disparity population. For a proposed project to be competitive there must be evidence that the intended audience is a health disparity population and/or their healthcare providers. A population is a health disparity population if there is a significant disparity in the overall rate of disease incidence, prevalence, morbidity, mortality or survival rates in the population as compared to the health status of the general population.
