The Fogarty HIV Research Training Program solicited applications under three different Funding Opportunities Announcements (FOAs).
For all future D43 and D71 receipt dates please use the newly reissued FOAs and associated application packages. See instructions for Correct Application Package for PAR-13-126 (D43) - NOT-TW-13-006 and PAR-13-214 (D71) - NOT-TW-13-007.
The overall goal of the Fogarty HIV Research Training Program is to strengthen the human capacity to contribute to the ability of institutions in 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 The World Bank Country and Lending Groups to identify countries with low- or middle-income economies.)
With co-funding from other NIH Institutes, Centers and Offices, Fogarty has provided 25 years of support to HIV research through two HIV research training programs: the AIDS International Training and Research Program (AITRP) and the International Clinical, Operations and Health Services Research Training Award for AIDS TB program (ICOHRTA AIDS TB). Fogarty has consolidated these two programs into the new Fogarty HIV Research Training Program.
While the areas for training permitted under the new program will be broad - to include HIV-related research and selected critical research infrastructure areas - each application should focus on building or strengthening capacity in a particular scientific or critical research infrastructure area at a LMIC institution. Applicant organizations may submit more than one application, provided that each application is programmatically and scientifically distinct.
The new program will move beyond simple output indicators (number and type of people trained) to outcome indicators (increased research capacity at an institutional level) for more meaningful monitoring and evaluating both of individual awards and of the program as a whole. It is anticipated that this approach will allow applicants to be more responsive to an emerging need at an LMIC institution for research capacity, and will provide more opportunities for LMIC institutions to collaborate with NIH and other U.S. government funded efforts.
