Race Equality Framework


The Race Equality Framework is a self-assessment tool to help organisations improve racial equality in public involvement in health and care research. The Framework will help assess how policies, practices and culture could be changed to better serve diverse communities, foster improved race relations and ultimately improve healthcare delivery.
The NIHR recognises the damage caused by systemic racism and is demonstrating a commitment to change by making race a top priority. This is a key part of our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.

The Framework has been co-produced by members of the NIHR’s Race Equality Public Action Group (REPAG). REPAG aims to work with Black African, Asian and Caribbean heritage communities to strengthen NIHR’s understanding of race inequality in health and social care research and advise on actions to take.
