Chin MH, Goldmann D. Meaningful disparities reduction through research and translation programs. Journal of the American Medical Association. 2011 Jan 26;305(4):404-405.
The authors describe an approach for making equity an integral component and explicit requirement of governmental and private funding announcements aimed at improving quality of care and outcomes. The approach makes disparities reduction a key goal in the development and rollout of a grant initiative and requires applicants to provide a detailed description of how they will address equity in their conceptual, intervention, and analytical models.
