Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Administrative Supplements to Support Research on Preventive Interventions with Populations that Experience Health Disparities (Admin Supp Clinical Trial Optional)

Purpose: The NIH Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) within the Office of the Director Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives (DPCPSI) announces the availability of administrative supplements to active grants and cooperative agreements to support research on preventive interventions with populations that experience health disparities. The ODP is coordinating the new trans-NIH research effort, ADVANCE: Advancing Prevention Research for Health Equity, which grew out of the ODP’s portfolio analysis of NIH research. In an examination of NIH-funded grants and cooperative agreements between fiscal years 2012 and 2017, the ODP found that only 8.5% of all projects focused on preventing the leading risk factors or causes of death and disability (e.g., poor nutrition, low physical activity, smoking), falling well below their burden on the nation’s health. An additional analysis of the NIH research portfolio showed that between fiscal years 2016 and 2019, only 3.6% of NIH-funded prevention projects included a randomized intervention to address a leading risk factor in populations that experience health disparities. ODP is therefore soliciting supplements to facilitate a greater focus among current NIH grantees on preventive interventions in populations that experience health disparities.
