The National Institute of Mental Health, an agency of Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is seeking proposals from eligible organisations for a program entitled “Health Promotion Among Racial and Ethnic Minority Males”.
This initiative seeks applications that propose to stimulate and expand research in the health of minority men. Specifically, this initiative is intended to:
- Enhance the understanding of the numerous factors (e.g., sociodemographic, community, societal, personal) influencing the health promoting behaviors of racial and ethnic minority males across the life cycle, and
- Encourage 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 age 18 and older.
- The combined budget for direct costs for the two year project period may not exceed $275,000. No more than $200,000 in direct costs may be requested in any single year.
- The maximum project period is two years.
- Studies that integrate the latest scientific advances to develop interventions in areas such as precision health, data science/big data, m-health, and omics science
- Studies that test innovative interventions to reduce risk factors associated with the leading causes of morbidity and mortality (e.g., poor nutrition, sedentary lifestyle, and risky behavior) among racial and ethnic minority men in rural, urban, and nontraditional settings, including interventions addressing multiple risk factors
- Multifaceted interventions designed to increase both initial and repeat health screenings and risk assessment among racial and ethnic minority and underserved men
- Studies that include innovative approaches involving families, social networks, or communities in interventions designed to enhance health-promotion structures and behaviors
- Obesity prevention, treatment, and maintenance interventions that target all minority males, in particular, Hispanics and African Americans
- Innovative interventions that target all minority males, in particular, Hispanics and African Americans, for cardiovascular and cancer screening, identification, prevention and treatment
- Interventions that incorporate faith, cultural and family values and are designed to test the effects of unique and creative intergenerational health promotion activities
- Culturally and linguistically appropriate studies designed to enhance self-efficacy, competence, and skill development to support the initiation and maintenance of health promoting behaviors
- Studies that include innovative applications of mobile health and other technologies in interventions designed to enhance health-promotion behaviors and/or to reduce health risk behaviors
- Studies that employ research approaches such as community-based participatory research and participatory action research to determine the most feasible and effective biopsychosocial and biobehavioral interventions to reduce or eliminate health disparities
