Health Promotion Among Racial and Ethnic Minority Males

The purpose of this initiative is to stimulate and expand research in the health of minority men. Specifically, this initiative is intended to (1) enhance our understanding of the numerous factors (e.g., sociodemographic, community, societal, personal) influencing the health promoting behaviors of racial and ethnic minority males and their subpopulations across the life cycle; and (2) solicit applications focusing on the development and testing of culturally and linguistically appropriate health-promoting interventions designed to reduce health disparities among racially and ethnically diverse males and their subpopulations age 21 and older. Each of the sponsors of this PA has a strategic plan, which addresses research related to minority health and health disparities. This is located on their websites. For purposes of this initiative, the definitions of health disparities and minority populations are those outlined in the NINR’s Strategic Plan on Reducing Health Disparities located at Health Disparities are defined as differences in the incidence, prevalence, mortality, and burden of diseases and other adverse health conditions that exist among specific population groups in the US. Specific population groups are identified as African American, Asian and Asian Pacific Islander, Hispanic and Latino, American Indian and Alaska Native. These groups are the target populations for this announcement. Example of health disparities noted among minority males include: HIV infection is the third leading cause of death for Hispanic males ages 25-44, and the second leading cause of death in African American males within the same age group.
