Health Disparities and Health Equity Literature Database

The BRP Health Disparities and Health Equity Literature Database is a compilation of peer-reviewed journal articles, reviews, and analysis papers on health disparities- or health equity-related topics that were co-authored by the extramural BRP research community.


To identify relevant literature published by BRP grantees in our Health Disparities research portfolio, PubMed IDs were linked with grant numbers. Search results were limited to peer-reviewed articles (e.g., journal articles, reviews, meta-analysis) published during the last 30 years that included populations that experience health disparities, health disparities, or health equity-related MeSH keywords[1].

Disclaimer: The use of search terms to identify publications may result in the display of publications whose key focus may not be on the topic of health disparities and health equity. Only publications reporting BRP-associated funding in Pubmed will be retrieved in this search. For more information see
