April is National Minority Health Month, a time to learn more about the health status of racial and ethnic minority populations in the U.S. The theme for 2018 is Partnering for Health Equity which highlights partnerships at the federal, state, local, tribal and territorial levels that help reduce disparities in health and health care. This year, the Office of Minority Health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will celebrate impactful public and private sector collaborations that advance health equity and help improve the health of the nation.

Join us in April as we feature partnerships that are moving communities toward their full potential for health. But this is also your story, and we encourage you to become our partner in the conversation on health equity by submitting a Partnerships in Action story. We want to highlight your great community partnerships with individuals and organizations that share our mission to advance health equity. You can also participate in our live events and social media activities and share information with your friends, family, colleagues and networks.

Partnerships in Action

En Español

Seven multi-ethnic youth huddled in circle

Do you have a great story of how a community partnership or collaboration is helping to advance health equity or reduce health disparities? Maybe you partnered with an organization to hold a health fair or blood drive. Or, maybe you worked with a local organization to start a community garden. If so, we want to hear it and share it with others!

Your story should include:

  • Details on the activities you and your partner carried out to help advance health equity
  • Description of how this particular partnership made a difference in the community
  • Suggestions on how others can create a similar partnership or get involved with your efforts

OMH will share the stories on social media and in other communications to highlight efforts that help improve the health of our communities and the nation. 

Please submit your story via email to OMHMedia@hhs.gov using the following guidance:

  • 200 words or less
  • Include a URL link to your partnership activity or organization’s website
  • Include your contact information (phone and email)
  • Use Partnerships in Action in the subject line


Individuals and organizations must ensure that they have permission to submit the story from the organization and subjects. OMH reserves the right to edit, fact check, publish or decline any submission.
