The National Minority Quality Forum was founded in 1998 to address the critical need for strengthening national and local efforts to use evidence-based, data-driven initiatives to guide programs to eliminate the disproportionate burden of premature death and preventable illness for racial and ethnic minorities and other special populations.


We collaborate to sponsor impactful initiatives that work to control health outcomes and eliminate health disparities.



We manage projects based on zip-code-level analysis, working with a comprehensive relational data platform for identifying health status and disparity prevalence.



We host professional and community events to bring awareness to health inequity and drive scientific innovation for change.
