Racial injustice and inequities in healthcare contribute to health disparities. Lack of trust among underserved populations can lead to reluctance to engage with biomedical research and utilize healthcare technologies. The National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Build UP Trust Challenge will award up to $1.25 million to improve engagement with minority health populations and populations with health disparities.

NIH seeks solutions that increase research participation and the adoption of existing and new tools and approaches to detect, treat, and monitor diseases, conditions, and disorders.

The website includes a Readiness Tool to help you determine eligibility and ensure your solution is a strong fit.
