HHS' Office of Minority Health is seeking to evaluate the success of the National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities, which was launched in April 2011 to create a community-driven and sustained approach to combating health disparities, according to a filing in the Federal Register (PDF).
HHS aims to assess effort to end health disparities
The evaluation would consist of four parts, according to a request for permission from the Office of Management and Budget to collect the necessary data for the evaluation. The project would determine the degree to which a structure to implement the partnership's goals and strategies has been established; collect, analyze and summarize baseline data for core indicators of immediate and intermediate outcomes; develop criteria for promising practices for ending health disparities and identifying such practices; and monitor data on social determinants of health and health outcomes using secondary sources, according to the request.
