HEALTH DISPARITIES NETWORK (HD)


Network Goals

The overarching goal of the HD Network is to increase awareness of tobacco-related health disparities research and influence the research agenda so that researchers understand the need to conduct and continue to engage in health disparities research.

Specific goals:

Goal1.Establish mechanisms within SRNT to promote leadership development, diversity, and inclusivity among investigators interested in HD research in industrialized countries.

Goal2. Encourage SRNT members to conduct research that assesses the effects of evidence-based interventions on reducing tobacco use and exposure and on reducing disparities in industrialized countries among the priority populations identified by the HD Network.

Goal
 3.
 Stimulate research that increases our understanding of initiation, exposure and tobacco use across the life course among the priority population identified by the HD Network.

Goal4. Encourage research that increases our understanding of disparities in quitting and relapse behaviors, their association with dependence, and the psychosocial and socio-environmental context in which relapse and quitting occur.

Goal5. Generate interest in research that increases our understanding of the biological and genetic mechanisms of nicotine addiction and tobacco-related diseases as well as their interactions with socio-environmental influences. 

Goal6. Promote translational research to ensure that culturally appropriate interventions reach the populations in need.
