Funding Collaborations

Fogarty collaborates with components of the National Institutes of Health and other partners to foster global health research on a variety of research and training opportunities involving low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

Current Collaboration Funding Opportunities

Ongoing Fogarty and NIH Global Health Collaborations

African Postdoctoral Training Initiative (APTI)

The African Academy of Sciences (AAS), NIH and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are partnering under the auspices of the Coalition of African Research and Innovation (CARI) to establish a post-doctoral training fellowship program, the African Postdoctoral Training Initiative (APTI).

Basic Behavioral and Social Sciences Opportunity Network (OppNet)

The NIH Basic Behavioral and Social Sciences Opportunity Network (OppNet) is a trans-NIH initiative to expand the agency's funding of basic behavioral and social sciences research. OppNet issues a variety of funding opportunities to solicit research applications examining basic mechanisms of behavioral maintenance, including:

Chronic, noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) and HIV/AIDS

The NIH is leading the project Research to Guide Practice: Enhancing HIV/AIDS platforms to address NCDs in low-resource settings in collaboration with the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and other partners. The project aims to bring together researchers, implementers and government representatives to articulate practical goals, approaches and a related research agenda to incorporate prevention, care and treatment for noncommunicable diseases into HIV/AIDS platforms in LMICs.

Climate Change

In June of 2010, NIH issued a Notice to Highlight Current NIH Funding Opportunities that Promote Research on the Human Health Effects of Climate Change. Recognizing the need to address climate change, the Trans-NIH Working Group on Climate Change and Health held a workshop to identify research priorities and gaps, to devise methods for enhanced collaboration within the NIH and with other federal agencies in this area, and to review the NIH portfolio of projects directly or indirectly related to climate change.

Creative and Novel Ideas in HIV Research (CNIHR)

Creative and Novel Ideas in HIV Research (CNIHR), presented by the International AIDS Society in collaboration with the NIH and the NIH-funded Centers for AIDS Research (CFAR), aims to attract international and U.S.-based early stage investigators from outside the field of HIV research to help address key scientific questions in HIV research, including emerging issues of long-term survival with HIV infection, prevention of HIV transmission and research towards a cure.

Global Alliance of Chronic Diseases

NIH participates in the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD), a collection of publicly funded research agencies that supports innovative research collaborations to address the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases in vulnerable populations.

Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa)

The Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa) Initiative is a partnership between NIH, the African Society of Human Genetics and Wellcome Trust to foster genomic and epidemiological research in African scientific institutions.

Implementation Science

  • The trans-NIH Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health program supports research to identify, develop, evaluate and refine effective and efficient methods, systems, infrastructures and strategies. Focusing on patient outcomes, supported programs will disseminate and implement research-tested health behavior change interventions, evidence-based prevention, early detection, diagnostic, treatment and management, quality of life improvement services, and data monitoring and surveillance reporting tools into public health and clinical practice settings.
    • Apply through Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health R01 (PAR-19-274), R21 (PAR-19-275) and R03 (PAR-19-276). Fogarty is participating in the R21 and R03. Expires May 8, 2022.

Minority Health and Health Disparities International Research Training (MHIRT)

Minority Health and Health Disparities International Research Training (MHIRT) from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) allows U.S. institutions to offer short-term international research training opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students from health disparity backgrounds, enabling collaboration between U.S. colleges and universities, and international research programs. Fogarty provides co-funding to some programs.

Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER)

Partnerships for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER) is a competitive awards program that invites scientists in developing countries to apply for funds to support research and capacity-building activities on topics of importance to USAID and conducted in partnership with U.S. Government-funded and selected private sector partners. NIH is a partner. The program is supported by USAID but implemented by the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

Rare Diseases

The Rare Diseases Clinical Research Consortia (RDCRC) for the Rare Diseases Clinical Research Network is a cooperative agreement research program to facilitate clinical research in rare diseases. Learn more about rare diseases at NIH from the Office of Rare Diseases Research at the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS).

South Africa Collaborative Biomedical Research

The U.S.-South Africa Program for Collaborative Biomedical Research is a collaboration between NIH and the South Africa Medical Research Council (MRC). Most recently funding was available through R01, R21 and U01 requests for applications to support TB, HIV/AIDS biomedical and behavioral science, and HIV-related co-morbidities, including malignancies. Fogarty participated in the R01 and R21.

Sub-Saharan African Collaborative HIV and Cancer Consortia

The Sub-Saharan African Collaborative HIV and Cancer Consortia, supported by Fogarty and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), will promote and facilitate research on HIV and cancer in Africa through collaborative efforts between investigators in the U.S. and investigators in sub-Saharan African countries.
