The Office of Minority Health (OMH) funds a variety of grant and standard cooperative agreement programs, under its mandate to eliminate disparities in health for minorities. The program activities generally involve a mixture of health promotion, screening, access to services; treatment, training and education; materials development; case management; capacity-building; and development of community linkages. These programs are required to provide program evaluation data related to performance standards. At the same time, unique program contributions are often overlooked by standard reporting mechanism. The goals of the OMH UDS were to capture the unique program factors while incorporating the required uniform measures.
