Site Summary: 

The Office of Minority Health (OMH) was created by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in 1985 as a result of the Report of the Secretary's Task Force on Black and Minority Health. Under the direction of the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Minority Health, OMH advises the Secretary and the Office of Public Health and Science (OPHS) on public health issues affecting American Indians and Alaska Natives, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islanders, Blacks/African Americans, and Hispanics/Latinos.

The mission of OMH is to improve the health of racial and ethnic populations through the development of effective health policies and programs that help to eliminate disparities in health.

OMH works closely with sister agencies within HHS and their minority health representatives. Regional minority health consultants serve as OMH representatives in the 10 HHS regional offices. OMH works closely with established State offices of minority health, and provides technical assistance, as requested, to minority community groups seeking to establish similar entities within their states.

OMH has a role in the development and coordination of Federal health policy by addressing minority health concerns and making progress to eliminate health disparities. OMH helps to ensure that Federal, State, and local health programs take into account the needs of disadvantaged and racial and ethnic populations, including their specific and cultural characteristics.
