Call for Applications – Fogarty HIV Research Training Program for Low-and Middle-Income Country Institutions

Posted by Kimberley Meijers on June 2, 2016 at 1:48 pm



Closing date: 23 August 2016.

The purpose of this FOA is to encourage applications for research training programs to strengthen the scientific capacity of institutions in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to conduct HIV research relevant to the evolving HIV epidemic in their country.

This FOA can support training for a broad range of HIV research areas:

  • basic, epidemiologic, clinical, behavioral, and social science research across HIV prevention, care and treatment;
  • pathophysiology and therapeutics research to address HIV infection, the effects of HIV on body systems, and HIV’s interaction with other co-morbidities and co-infections;
  • implementation, operations, health services, and health systems research to improve the HIV prevention, care and treatment care continuum;
  • research on HIV co-infections, AIDS-defining and HIV-related cancers, neurological and neuro-psychiatric morbidities, and other co-morbidities and health conditions, both infectious and non-infectious, that contribute to HIV transmission or poor health in HIV-infected individuals, including HIV infected substance (drug and alcohol) users;
  • research on integrated bio-behavioral HIV prevention, care and treatment among high risk populations, including polysubstance drug (injection and non-injection) and alcohol use;
  • community-based HIV research, HIV research on complex/multi-component interventions, structural interventions, and comparative effectiveness, and HIV research on impact evaluation or health economics;
  • cross-disciplinary HIV research among vulnerable or under-researched LMIC populations, including women, substance (drug and alcohol) users, men who have sex with men, transgendered populations, aging populations, orphans, and children;
  • clinical research for team members to support HIV clinical research and HIV clinical trials;
  • bio-statistics for HIV research design and methodology
  • bioinformatics, data analysis, data management, data quality assurance and control to support HIV research;
  • laboratory capacity, including bio-safety, and maintenance of lab quality assurance for HIV clinical research.

An application should focus the proposed training program to strengthen research capacity in a defined HIV scientific area at a specific LMIC institution or at LMIC sites in an established HIV research network.
