About the FCHDR


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 will lead to new or better programs, policies and practices to reduce or eliminate health disparities.

Research Topics

FCHDR research topics are selected based on needs and opportunities for pooling scientific expertise and resources to conduct, translate, and disseminate research to accelerate the elimination of health disparities. In addition to engaging in research collaboration, FCHDR also promotes the development of products such as research reports, white papers, and journal articles.
