Emerging Epidemic Virus Research Training for West African Countries with Widespread Transmission of Ebola (Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone)

Status: No plans to recompete at this time

Program Overview

Planning Grants for Emerging Epidemic Virus Research Training for West African Countries with Widespread Transmission of Ebola supported U.S. or African research institutions to plan research training and capacity building programs focused on emerging viral epidemics in collaboration with institutions in Guinea, Liberia and/or Sierra Leone. 

Projects included a collaborative planning process to develop training approaches to create sustainable research capacity for the early identification, transmission prediction, testing of public health responses, and assessing and addressing long term health sequelae related to emerging viral diseases that have the potential for regional and global pandemics.

The proposed one-year planning process was expected to lead to an application to the appropriate Fogarty collaborative international research training program, such as the Global Infectious Disease Research Training program; Fogarty HIV Research Training program; International Research Ethics Education and Curriculum Development Award, and others.
