SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authorized under Section 1707 of the Public Health Service Act, 42 U.S.C. 300u–6, as amended, the mission of OMH is to improve the health of racial and ethnic minority populations through the development of health policies and programs that help eliminate health disparities. OMH awards and other activities are intended to support the identification of effective policies, programs, and practices for improving health outcomes and to promote the sustainability and dissemination of these approaches. Under the authority of Public Law 116–260 (2021 Consolidated Appropriations Act), Congress directed OMH to create a Center to support education, service and policy development, and research advancing indigenous solutions that ultimately address health disparities among NHPI and AI/AN populations. I. Background Information NHPI communities experience persistent health disparities, including higher rates of diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity, compared to nonHispanic white populations. Identification and awareness of health outcomes and health determinants are essential steps toward reducing health disparities in minority communities at greatest risk. Research has shown that culturally adapted and culturally grounded health and public health approaches and interventions that are aligned with indigenous communities’ cultural values and perspectives are effective in improving clinical outcomes within NHPI and AI/AN communities. VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:39 Oct 25, 2021 Jkt 256001 Program Information In September 2021, OMH announced awards to establish a Center for Indigenous Innovation and Health Equity, for which OMH will provide the organizational structure and operational framework. The Center will support efforts including education, service and policy development, and research related to advancing sustainable solutions to address health disparities and advance health equity in the AI/AN and NHPI populations. Two award recipients will function as a single initiative, coordinated by OMH. Each award recipient will focus on one of the two focus populations: AI/AN or NHPI populations. OMH expects the award recipients to implement the Center by: (1) Managing the Center advisory board; (2) partnering with academic institutions, indigenous leaders, and NHPI and AI/AN communities on Center activities; (3) identifying and disseminating culturally appropriate evidence-based and/or evidence-informed interventions, and lessons learned; and (4) designing and providing education and training to support community capacity-building. The Center’s activities are expected to result in: (1) Increased community capacity and knowledge of culturally appropriate, evidence-based and/or evidenceinformed interventions, and policies that address health disparities among NHPI and AI/AN populations; (2) increased utilization of effective strategies to reduce NHPI and AI/AN health disparities; and (3) improved NHPI and AI/AN health and reduction of health disparities. III. Questions • Are there priority health disparity issue(s) affecting NHPI communities that the Center should address? • How can the Center engage community partners to increase knowledge and adoption of culturally appropriate, evidence-based, and/or evidence-informed interventions, and policies that reduce health disparities among NHPI populations? • What should the Center consider when disseminating public health messages or promising practices Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dated: October 18, 2021.
