Outreach to Special Populations

The Outreach and Special Populations Branch (OSPB) manages and develops programs in an effort to eliminate disparities in health information access by providing community outreach support, training health professionals on NLM’s health information databases, and designing special population websites that address specific concerns in various racial and ethnic groups. These outreach programs reach health professionals, public health workers and the general public especially about health issues that disproportionately impact minorities such as environmental exposures and HIV/AIDS. OSPB collaborates with other components of NLM involved in similar activities, particularly the National Network of Libraries of Medicine® and the Office of Health Information Programs Development. As part of its outreach, OSPB has created web sites with information of interest to targeted populations: American Indian Health, Arctic Health, Asian American Health, Refugee Health Information Network, and Women’s Health Resources.
