Eight new awards were funded through Fogarty’s Reducing Stigma to Improve HIV/AIDS Prevention, Treatment and Care in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) program, totaling approximately $3 million in support over the next two years. The awards are intended to spur development of innovative interventions to reduce stigma in LMICs, including among particularly marginalized or vulnerable communities, such as adolescent girls, people who inject drugs, and caregivers and children of people living with HIV.

In addition to Fogarty, the awards received funding from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).
