Six of the grantee institutions under Fogarty's HIV Research Training Program have received supplements to increase behavioral and social science training opportunities related to HIV/AIDS. The modest supplements, expected to total about $800,000 over two years, aim to expand and strengthen the work supported through the primary awards.
Some supplements will provide additional slots for trainees to receive behavioral and social sciences focused training. Others invest in planning activities for future applications with a substantial focus on behavioral and social science training in HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment.
Support for the supplements comes from the NIH Office of AIDS Research through a partnership with the Division of AIDS Research at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).
