Description:The HHS Office of Minority Health anticipates funding to support projects to demonstrate if utilization of a methodological framework, structured process, and tool are effective in assessing and identifying policies that might adversely impact health outcomes in racial and ethnic minority populations and may contribute to health disparities often associated with structural racism. Awardees will be expected to work in collaboration with the MP-CPI-21-003 Coordinating Center to: (1) implement a methodological framework for assessing and analyzing policies; (2) develop a policy approach to address health disparities often associated structural racism; and (3) implement the new/revised policy approach and evaluate its impact on health outcomes for racial and ethnic minorities within their jurisdiction. BACKGROUND: Racial and ethnic minority populations experience a number of disparities which contribute to poor health outcomes. According to Healthy People 2030, structural racism is a social determinant of health that impacts one’s health, well-being, and quality of life. Studies have shown that policies can be underlying contributing factors to structural racism. Structural racism, evidenced in residential segregation, inequitable allocation and quality of services and resources such as health care and education, disproportionate contact with the justice system, and lack of access to employment opportunities, plays a persistent and large role in historical disadvantage and supports the persistent health disparities experienced by racial and ethnic minority populations. Understanding policy implications can have a significant impact on mitigating the impact of structural racism on health disparities in these populations.
