FDA Office of Minority Health
The Mission of the Office of Minority Health:
To promote and protect the health of diverse populations through research and communication that addresses health disparities.
We aim to:
- increase the amount of clinical trial data available on racial and ethnic minorities; improve the data quality to determine how minorities react to medical products; and increase transparency and access to available data
- strengthen FDA’s ability to respond to minority health concerns and
- promote health and safety communication to minority populations who often experience low health literacy and/or speak English as a second language.
