HD Pulse

An Ecosystem of Health Disparities and Minority Health Resources

About HDPulse

HDPulse Data Portal

The objective of the Data Portal is to provide an ecosystem to characterize health disparities to motivate action to reduce health disparities. Interactive graphics and maps provide visual support for deciding where to focus public health disparities control efforts.

The target audiences are health planners, policy makers, public health information providers, and researchers who need quick and easy access to pertinent data to explore statistics to identify research opportunities.

The Data Portal brings together data that are collected from public health surveillance systems by using either their published reports or public use files. There is always a lag prior to data release. Data are the most recent that have completed the national data synthesis and quality assurance processes.

Find and submit interventions and resources to design, implement, and evaluate evidence-based interventions to improve minority health and reduce health disparities.


HD Data Registry

A centralized resource for identified health disparities along with diseases/conditions affecting minority health.
