The health status of African American women presents a composite picture of health disparities. Biomedical and behavioral research programs solely focused on women are recent. Research programs that address the health disparities of African American women are difficult to identify. The intent of this study was to establish a baseline of women's health research occurring at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). We explored the existence of such research programs by sending a questionnaire to 117 HBCUs. Information from the respondents (n=64, 42 institutions) highlight the minimal existence of these programs and the limited scope of their research activities.
