Limited Competition: Fogarty HIV Research Training Program for Low-and Middle-Income Country Institutions (D43)
Grant Amount: Application budgets are limited to $282,000 direct costs per year.
The overall goal of the Fogarty International Center (FIC) HIV Research Training Program is to strengthen the human capacity to contribute to the ability of institutions in eligible low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) to conduct HIV-related research on the evolving HIV-related epidemics in their country and to compete independently for research funding. See NOT-TW-12-011 to ascertain LMIC eligibility.
The Fogarty HIV Research Training Program encourages applications under three different Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs). This FOA (D43) encourages applications to support research training to develop and strengthen the scientific leadership and expertise needed for HIV-related research at eligible LMIC institutions. The second FOA (D71) (PAR-13-214) is to encourage planning grants to support eligible LMIC institutions to develop an application to submit under this FOA. The third FOA (G11) will support applications from U.S. institutions for training in defined research infrastructure areas at LMIC institutions (PAR-13-215).
This FOA, under the Fogarty HIV Research Training Program, can support training for a broad range of HIV research areas:
all basic, epidemiologic, clinical, behavioral, social science, implementation, operations, health services, and health systems research across HIV prevention, care and treatment; research on HIV co-infections, AIDs-defining and HIV-related cancers, co-morbidities and other health conditions, both infectious and non-infectious, that contribute to HIV transmission or poor health in HIV-infected individuals; research and research methodology for community-based research, complex and multi-component interventions, for structural interventions, for comparative effectiveness research, for impact evaluation or for health economics; HIV-related research among vulnerable or under-researched LMIC populations, including women, children, substance users, men who have sex with men, transgendered populations, aging populations, orphans and vulnerable children; training for clinical research team members to support clinical research and clinical trials; bio-statistics for research design and methodology, data analysis, data management, and data quality assurance and control; laboratory capacity, bio-safety, and maintenance of lab quality assurance and control.
