Office of Global Health and Health Disparities

The OGHHD supports research to diminish health disparities in neurological disorders, which is inherent in the NINDS mission and commitment to reducing the disproportionate burden of neurological disease borne by underserved groups of society, including racial and ethnic minority, rural, and socioeconomically disadvantaged populations, by funding a spectrum of research from basic science through clinical studies and training the next generation of health disparities investigators and to strengthen NINDS investments in research on health disparities and minority, community, and global health.
