Purpose:

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is pleased to announce a new Request for Applications (see RFA) focused on the impact of diabetes on health disparities and, the impact of health disparities on diabetes and its complications.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, health disparities are defined as: differences in health that are closely linked with social or economic disadvantage. Health disparities adversely affect groups of people who have systematically experienced greater social and/or economic obstacles to health based on their racial or ethnic group; religion; socioeconomic status; gender; age; mental health; cognitive, sensory, or physical disability; sexual orientation; geographic location; or other characteristics historically linked to discrimination or exclusion.

Background:

For this funding opportunity, attention must focus on, and hypotheses should reflect, the impact of race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, health care access, and/or other direct factors that underlie diabetes health disparities, and describe how results will transform assessment and treatment of underserved groups and address significantly improved outcomes in diabetes or its complications. We encourage formative research, intervention development, and pilot-testing of interventions. For the purposes of this RFA, intervention may include behavioral, social, or structural approaches, as well as combination biomedical and behavioral approaches that prevent and/or improve clinical outcomes for persons living with diabetes.
