Federal Collaboration on Health Disparities Research

The Federal Collaboration on Health Disparities Research (FCHDR) was established to engage a wide range of federal agencies in cross-agency research partnerships to promote more coordinated efforts that target health improvement in populations disproportionately affected by disease, injury and/or disability. Research developed through the FCHDR can lead to new or better programs, policies and practices to help reduce or eliminate health disparities.


The New FCHDR Executive Committee is preparing to recruit general members and form new workgroups. Read more ...

The FCHDR has a new Executive Committee. Seven federal agencies -- HHS, Housing and Urban Development, Veterans Administration, Education Department / National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research, Environmental Protection Agency, National Science Foundation, and Department of Justice -- designated senior officials as members.

The FCHDR web site launched on August 6. The goal is to enhance FCHDR visibility, promote greater federal collaboration, coordination, and access to tools, resources, and information needed to plan, conduct, and promote research that will accelerate health disparities elimination.
