A team of researchers at Indiana University created the first published electronic medical record system in sub-Saharan Africa
Fogarty and NIH support a diverse mix of research projects in sub-Saharan Africa with significant activities in approximately 20 African countries. About a third of the funding supports groundbreaking research and research training on HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases, including a substantial effort to study mother-to-child transmission of HIV. Around 20 percent funds research on other infectious diseases, ranging from population-based research on malaria, schistosomiasis and leishmaniasis, to molecular research on vectors and parasites. Chronic disease research makes up about 12 percent of the research portfolio, with the remainder devoted to child development, biodiversity, basic research and other studies.
