                                 A BILL


 
 To provide, with respect to diabetes in minority populations, for an 
  increase in the extent of activities carried out by the Centers for 
 Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

     This Act may be cited as the ``Minority Populations Diabetes 
Prevention and Control Act of 2003''.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

     The Congress finds as follows:
            (1) Minority populations, including African Americans, 
        Hispanics, Native Americans, and Asians, have the highest 
        incidence of diabetes and the highest rates of complications of 
        the disease. These groups are rapidly growing segments of the 
        population and specific programs of research, education, and 
        treatment must be carried out to address its ravaging effects 
        on minority populations.
            (2) The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has had 
        great success with comprehensive State-based diabetes 
        initiatives. An example is support for a program carried out in 
        the State of New York, where in only two years diabetes-related 
        hospitalization rates decreased by 35 percent and diabetes-
        related amputations of extremities were decreased by 39 
        percent. Due to funding constraints, only 16 States have 
        received support for such programs.

SEC. 3. CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION; INCREASED PUBLIC 
              HEALTH ACTIVITIES REGARDING DIABETES IN MINORITY 
              POPULATIONS.

    (a) In General.--The Secretary of Health and Human Services, acting 
through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, shall increase, 
relative to fiscal year 2001, the extent of activities carried out 
through such Centers regarding diabetes in minorities, including grants 
for State-based initiatives. Activities under the preceding sentence 
shall include--
            (1) prevention research;
            (2) cooperating with the States to determine the national 
        incidence and prevalence in various minority populations and 
        the reasons therefor;
            (3) activities of the National Diabetes Education Program 
        carried out by the Secretary; and
            (4) projects to provide treatment.
    (b) Authorization of Appropriations.--For the purpose of carrying 
out subsection (a), there are authorized to be appropriated such sums 
as may be necessary for each of the fiscal years 2004 through 2008. 
Such authorizations are in addition to other authorizations of 
appropriations that are available for such purpose.

SEC. 4. NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH; IMPLEMENTATION OF 
              RECOMMENDATIONS OF DIABETES RESEARCH WORKING GROUP.

     For the purpose of carrying out the plan to implement the 
recommendations of the Diabetes Research Working Group of the National 
Institute on Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (which plan was 
developed and submitted to the Congress pursuant to the Department of 
Health and Human Services Appropriations Act, 2000), there are 
authorized to be appropriated such sums as may be necessary for each of 
the fiscal years 2004 through 2008. Such authorizations are in addition 
to other authorizations of appropriations that are available for such 
purpose.

SEC. 5. DEFINITION.

     For purposes of this Act, the terms ``minorities'' and 
``minority'' refer to individuals who are members of a racial or ethnic 
minority group as defined in section 1707 of the Public Health Service 
Act.
                                 <all>
