Fogarty HIV Research Training Program for Low-and Middle-Income Country Institutions (D43 Clinical Trial Optional)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (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 conducting research in a broad range of HIV research areas across HIV prevention, treatment, care, and quality of life continuum. This includes basic, epidemiologic, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences, data science, community-based, implementation, operations, health services, and health systems research. Cross-disciplinary research as well as HIV-associated comorbidities and coinfections affecting the HIV epidemic will be supported under this FOA.

An application should focus the proposed training program to strengthen research capacity in a defined high priority HIV scientific area aligned with NIH HIV/AIDS research priorities (NOT-OD-20-018) at a specific LMIC institution and collaborating LMIC partner institutions.

This FOA allows qualified Trainees to serve as the lead investigator of an independent clinical trial; or to propose a separate ancillary study to an existing trial under the mentorship of an appropriate clinical researcher or to gain research experience in a clinical trial led by another investigator, as part of their research and career development.
