NIMHD Launches Language Access Portal 

NIMHD launches language access portal

The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) has launched a new resource for our stakeholders who work with health disparity populations with limited English proficiency: the Language Access Portal (LAP).

The LAP contains information, in multiple languages, for six disease areas where major health disparities have been identified in non-English speaking populations. Disease areas currently include cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and more. New disease areas will continue to be included and additional resources will be incorporated as they become available.

The new portal supports NIH’s comprehensive Language Access Plan by providing access to reliable cross-cultural and linguistically appropriate health information from NIH and other federal agencies.
