The overall goal of the Fogarty International Center (FIC) HIV Research Training Program is to strengthen the scientific capacity of institutions in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to conduct HIV research related to the evolving HIV epidemic in their country.

The program provides opportunities for U.S. and LMIC institutions to collaborate with each other and their partners to fill gaps in training in a particular area that will strengthen HIV research capacity at the proposed LMIC institutions. Applicants should design HIV research training programs such that trainees can address both long-standing and emerging HIV research questions, responsive to the needs of their institutions and countries. The program is also expected to enhance the capacity for LMIC institutions to collaborate with NIH, U.S. Government, other donors and LMICs in their HIV/AIDS efforts.
