Format: Web Site
Institute: National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD)
The NIDCD's strategic research plan and budget addressing health disparities for fiscal years 2009–2013 is now online. The plan was developed at the request of the NIH Director and is updated every three years.
In the plan, the NIDCD details steps it is taking to determine how communication disorders affect health disparities; facilitate participation of special populations in research and research training; ensure that human communication research serves all populations; and address research opportunities to understand the basis for health disparities within its purview.
