National Institutes of Health (NIH) and its participating Institutes and Centers invite applications for administrative supplements to support research highlighting the impact of sex/gender influences at the intersection of race/ethnicity and other social determinants in human health and illness, including preclinical, clinical and behavioral studies. The purpose of this FOA is 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 underrepresented, understudied and/or underreported in biomedical research. The proposed research must address an area within Objective 3.9 (Goal 3.0) of the NIH Strategic Plan for Research on Women’s Health 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 should 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). This FOA will use the NIH Administrative Supplement award mechanism.
