National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities (NPA)
The National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities (NPA) is intended to lead local offices of minority health and its partners toward a shared destination: a nation free of health disparities, with quality health outcomes among racial and ethnic minority populations. The NPA is an initiative of the US Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Minority Health in partnership with a broad, diverse array of partners.

Evaluation of the Local Office

Evaluation is an integral part of all planning efforts. When we conceptualize, write or implement a program we should pay attention to evaluation very closely. This becomes more important for health programs as stakeholders, funders and legislators demand more accountability, and as staff and administrators want to know more about the implementation and effectiveness of their programs. 
  
The Ohio Commission on Minority Health (OCMH) funded a Research and Evaluation Enhancement Program (REEP) to bring together Ohio evaluation experts who have experience evaluating culturally diverse health research projects.
