The lack of general awareness and understanding about the nature and extent of racial and ethnic health disparities in the U.S. and the impact that such disparities are having on the overall health of the Nation have been cited as a major barrier to the provision of programmatic, budgetary, and policy attention to these issues. Therefore, one of the long-term, annual measures agreed upon was to ‘‘increase awareness of racial/ethnic health status and health care disparities in the general population.’’ Additionally, OMH can use the findings about progress made in raising awareness to identify collaborative partners in the federal government, at the state and local levels, among businesses and non-profits, and among the faith community, in order to reach a wider audience. These results can be used by program decision-makers and policy-makers, within and outside of HHS, who are interested in capturing progress made in the last eight years after exposing the U.S. population to information which confirms the existence, and societal effects, of racial and ethnic health disparities.
