The Office of Global Health and Health Disparities (OGHHD) within the Division of Clinical Research, leads the coordination and development of programs and initiatives that foster global research and research on health disparities in neurological disorders and stroke. The primary objectives of the Office include:
Global Health: Support global research partnerships aimed at strengthening our understanding of the burden of neurological disease and identifying opportunities for improved diagnostics, treatment, and prevention strategies. Building sustainable capacity in low-and middle-income countries to enable the conduct of research and training in neurological disorders and stroke in low resource settings is also of interest.
Health Disparities: Advance research on disparities (or inequities) in neurological disease, healthcare, and health outcomes in disparate populations, including racial and ethnic minorities, the geographically disadvantaged, sex and gender minorities, and others who have been historically underserved, socioeconomically disadvantaged, marginalized, or adversely affected by persistent inequality. The Office seeks to support rigorous research, from basic science to implementation, that will identify, monitor, and target biological, environmental, behavioral, social, and/or healthcare system factors that influence disparities in neurological disease.
