Résumé/Citation: Amends the Public Health Service Act to improve the health of individuals who are members of minority groups and who are from disadvantaged backgrounds, and for other purposes. Title XVII of the Public Health Service Act (42 USC 300u et seq.) is amended to provide for the establishment of the Office of Minority Health responsible inter alia for setting short-term and long-term objectives and co-ordinating disease prevention, service delivery, research, etc in respect of the health concerns of persons from disadvantaged backgrounds, including racial and ethnic minorities, and for increasing their participation in health service and promotion programmes. Consequent provisions are made for the funding of these activities, and a special grant scheme is established to provide primary health services, including health screenings, and health counselling and education services to residents of public housing, subject to certain requirements. Grants are also to be made available to health profession schools for the purpose of assisting them in supporting "programs of excellence in health professions education for minority individuals" and in providing scholarships to disadvantaged students.
