The purpose of this initiative is to stimulate research aimed at reducing
health disparities among racial/ethnic minority and underserved women. More
specifically, this initiative seeks applications for: (1) research related to
health promotion or risk reduction among minority and underserved women age 21
and older; and, (2) intervention studies that show promise for improving the
health profile of minority and underserved women. Investigators responding to
this announcement should focus on enhancing the body of knowledge of a variety
of factors (e.g., social, economic, demographic, community, societal,
personal, cultural) influencing the health promoting and health compromising
behaviors of racial and ethnic minority women and underserved women and their
subpopulations. The focus of this program announcement is on women age 21 and
older, but investigators may also focus on the childhood antecedents of adult
health disparities.

Each of the sponsors of this initiative has a strategic plan, which addresses
health disparities and minority health. This can be found on each of the
respective web sites. For purposes of this initiative, the definitions of
health disparities and minority populations are those outlined in the NINRs
Strategic Plan on Reducing Health Disparities located at www.nih.gov/ninr.
Health Disparities are defined as differences in the incidence, prevalence,
mortality, and burden of diseases and other adverse health conditions that
exist among specific population groups in the United States when compared to
non-Hispanic Whites. Specific population groups are identified as African-
Americans, Asian and Asian Pacific Islanders, Hispanic and Latino, Native
American and Native Alaskan. Medically Underserved Populations are defined as
populations that have inadequate access to, or reduced utilization of high
quality health care. Included are low literacy, rural and low-income
populations, including older minority women, geographically isolated women,
lesbians, hearing and visually impaired women, physically or mentally
disabled women, migrant workers, immigrant and refugee women, and language
minority women. (Language minority individuals are those who do not speak
the most common language or languages in a country or region, which in the
United States means individuals who do not speak English. For information on
language minority populations, see
http://www.nichd.nih.gov/publications/pubs/diverse_voices.htm.) (For NICHDs
