The Office of Research on Womens Health (ORWH) announces the availability of administrative supplements to support interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research focused on the effect of sex/gender influences at the intersection of a number of social determinants, including but not
race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, education, health literacy and other social determinants in human health and illness.
This research includes preclinical, clinical and behavioral studies with the specific purpose to provide Administrative Supplements to active NIH parent grants for one year to address health disparities among women of populations in the US who are understudied, underrepresented and underreported in biomedical research.
The proposed research must address an area specified within Objective 3. 9 (Goal 3. 0) of the NIH Strategic Plan for Research on Womens Health (http://orwh.od.nih.gov/research/strategicplan/index.asp) which states:
Examine health disparities among women stemming from differences in such factors as race and ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender identity, and urban-rural living, as they influence health, health behaviors, and access to screening and therapeutic interventions.
Projects must include a focus on one or more NIH-designated health disparities populations, which include Blacks/African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, American Indians/Alaska Natives, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, socioeconomically disadvantaged populations, underserved rural populations, and sexual and gender minorities (SGM).
Combinations of one or more populations is also encouraged, e.g.
socioeconomically disadvantaged sexual and gender minorities.
