Abstract: The Office of Minority Health (OMH), Office of the Secretary (OS), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is requesting approval from OMB for the Think Cultural Health (TCH) Web site. The Web site is used to post information such as cultural competency, language access and health disparities articles, and notices of health disparities conferences for visitors to the site.

It supports the Office of Minority Health within the Office of the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS/OS/OMH) in complying with the cultural competency requirements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) (P.L.111-148), as well as the Secretary's Plan to Reduce Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities, the National Stakeholder Strategy for Achieving Health Equity, Healthy People 2020, the Secretary's Strategic Plan priorities, and the Assistant Secretary for Health's Public Health Quality agenda.
