Program Descriptions and Accomplishments
The Fogarty International Center (FIC) is dedicated to advancing the mission of NIH by supporting and facilitating global health research conducted by U.S. and international investigators, building partnerships between health research institutions in the U.S. and abroad, and training the next generation of scientists to address global health needs. FIC-supported programs encompass a wide range of diseases and needs, including HIV/AIDS; emerging infectious diseases, such as Ebola and Zika; non-communicable diseases, such as neurological disorders; and trauma and injury.
FIC supports research and research training programs for U.S. and low- and middle-income country (LMIC) scientists. These programs are built on long-standing partnerships between U.S. and LMIC academic institutions and have resulted in international networks of trained researchers poised to tackle the world's most intractable health programs. FIC programs extend the reach and competitiveness of U.S. universities, where there is high demand among students and faculty for international research opportunities. Currently, FIC supports over 500 research and research training programs involving 100 universities. In FY 2016, FIC supported a total of 244 extramural grants, including 48 Research Project Grant (RPG) awards and 196 in Other Research grants. FIC's extramural program will support an estimated total of 312 grants in FY 2017, which includes approximately 62 RPG awards and 250 Other Research grants.
FIC's Research and Management Support (RMS) provides administrative, budgetary, logistical, and scientific support to review, award, and monitor research grants, training awards and, contracts. It encompasses strategic planning, coordination, and evaluation of FIC's programs; regulatory compliance; international coordination; international science policy; and liaisons with other Federal agencies, Congress and the public. Specific functions include an in-house epidemiology program performing mathematical modeling of infectious diseases; international program officers developing partnerships between U.S. scientists and institutions and their counterparts abroad to advance scientific research and training; identification of collaborative opportunities with foreign science funding agencies; support for all NIH international travel by issuing and tracking official government passports and international visas; review and approval of Notice of Foreign Travel requests; and the creation and coordination of office travel cables to U.S. Embassies.
The FY 2018 Budget Request is $0.0, a decrease of $70.313 million from the FY 2017 Annualized CR. The FY 2018 President's Budget proposes the elimination of Fogarty International Center (FIC). Several key activities formerly managed by FIC would continue in the NIH Office of the Director (visa and passport services for all NIH international travel; partnerships between U.S. scientists, institutions and counterparts abroad to advance research and training; and certain collaborative efforts with NIH Institutes and Centers).
