AHRQ Seeks Interest in Research Projects Aimed at Advancing Equity
A new Special Emphasis Notice issued by AHRQ has announced the agency’s interest in receiving health services research grant applications that propose evidence-based interventions to advance the nation’s goal of achieving equity in the delivery of healthcare services.
AHRQ is seeking research projects aimed at reducing disparities in quality of care, patient safety, healthcare utilization and access, and ultimately, health outcomes. Inequities are rooted in historic and present-day injustices that exist across all aspects of society, including healthcare delivery, and the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on Black and other minority communities has made these inequities more apparent.
