The Initiative to Eliminate Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities is a national effort seeking to eliminate differences on certain key dimensions in health status by the year 2010 between the U.S. population as a whole and its racial and ethnic minorities. The Initiative will be conducted as a public-private partnership, with the U.S Department of Health and Human Services and the American Public Health Association as the Initiative's key facilitators. A Steering Committee for the Initiative has been appointed, consisting of nearly three dozen national leaders in sectors relevant to the health status of the public and six members of the President's Cabinet. This group will meet at the White House, on October 6, 2000, to issue a Call to the Nation to Eliminate Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities for the development of a national action plan.
