Office of Minority Health
The FDA Office of Minority Health (OMH) was established in 2010, as mandated by the Affordable Care Act. OMH serves as the principal advisor to the Commissioner on minority health and health disparities. The Office provides leadership and direction in identifying agency actions that can help reduce health disparities, including the coordination of efforts across the Agency.
The Office of Minority Health advances FDA’s regulatory mission in addressing the reduction of racial and ethnic health disparities and in achieving the highest standard of health for all.
The Office of Minority Health will fulfill its mission by achieving the following goals:
- To strengthen FDA capacity to address minority health and health disparities across the Agency through coordinated leadership on regulatory actions and decision making.
- To promote effective communication and the dissemination of information to the public, particularly underserved, vulnerable populations.
- To improve and strengthen the research and the evaluation of sub-population data associations with race and ethnicity.
