Dedicated to improving the health of racial and ethnic minority populations, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health was created in 1986 and reauthorized by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. The establishment of the Office is often considered one of the most significant outcomes of the 1985 Secretary’s Task Force Report on Black and Minority Health. Through the development of health policies and programs, the HHS Office of Minority Health works to eliminate health disparities.
