Observances Honoring Priority Populations
During the year, various observances honor the rich diversity of the United States, focusing on specific populations. As part of those observances, AHRQ is highlighting our efforts to address disparities in health by sharing information about grantees, projects, and products aimed at improving healthcare quality for these diverse groups.
Sept. 15 – Oct. 15
AHRQ recognizes researchers, health leaders and others who have helped to address health disparities and advance equity.
AHRQ joins the the Department of Health and Human Services and the Office of Minority Health in encouraging everyone to be #VaccineReady to decrease the impact COVID-19 is having on racial and ethnic minority and American Indian and Alaska Native communities. Working together, we are committed to supporting efforts to increase vaccination rates in these vulnerable communities as more vaccines become available.
