NIH FOA: Health Promotion for Native Americans


PAR-14-260: Interventions for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention in Native American Populations

Department of Health and Human Services
National Institutes of Health

Closing Date for Applications: August 24, 2017

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to develop, adapt, and test the effectiveness of health promotion and disease prevention interventions in Native American (NA) populations. NA populations are exposed to considerable risk factors that significantly increase their likelihood of chronic disease, substance abuse, mental illness, oral diseases, and HIV-infection.

The intervention program should be culturally appropriate and promote the adoption of healthy lifestyles, improve behaviors and social conditions and/or improve environmental conditions related to chronic diseases, the consumption of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs, mental illness, oral disease, or HIV-infection. The intervention program should be designed so that it could be sustained within the entire community within existing resources, and, if successful, disseminated in other Native American communities.

The long-term goal of this FOA is to reduce mortality and morbidity in NA communities.
