Description: The State/Tribal/Territorial Partnership Initiative is a demonstration cooperative agreement to identify best practices for documenting, sustaining and spreading health disparity-reducing interventions in racial and ethnic minority populations to ultimately improve health outcomes. Ultimately, this award is intended to enhance the capacity of state/tribal/territorial government agencies to: (1) Implement a public health quality improvement model that can be applied to any racial or ethnic health disparity area; and (2) Develop needed partnerships to sustain successful interventions after the award period. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: State, tribal and territorial government agencies are uniquely positioned to lead efforts for identifying, sustaining and spreading health disparity-reducing interventions using a public health quality improvement model that can be applied to any preventive or clinical issue. For the State/Tribal/Territorial Partnership Initiative, each awardee will be expected to: (1) Utilize baseline data to produce a health disparities profile on 1 to 2 topics aligned with the Department of Health and Human Services’ priority areas (e.g., opioid epidemic, HIV, sickle cell disease, physical activity, hepatitis B and maternal mortality), including the incorporation of any relevant Healthy People 2020 leading health indicator; (2) Implement an evidence-based intervention and/or promising practice in the geographical hotspot(s) consistent with the baseline data; and (3) Create a manuscript of the results and impact of the project, including the awardee’s identified best practices for sustaining and spreading successful interventions. Awardees will be expected to partner with state/tribal/territorial government agencies and additional health and/or community-based agencies/organizations. The Office of Minority Health will work closely with awardees, and technical assistance will be available for community partnership development and data collection activities to support the success of projects.
