DHHS/NIH: Tobacco Use and HIV in Low and Middle Income Countries

Deadline: 7 January 2020

The Department of Health and Human Services National Institutes of Health is currently seeking applications for its Tobacco Use and HIV in Low and Middle Income Countries to encourage exploratory/developmental research focused on the same.

In particular, applications are encouraged that focus on the development and evaluation of tobacco cessation interventions tailored to HIV positive populations, including those with co-morbidities such as tuberculosis (TB), in low-resource settings in LMICs.

Program Scopes

Specific research questions that fall within the scope of this program are not limited to:

  • What types of tobacco cessation interventions are most effective in persons with HIV, with or without TB co-infection, to achieve improved tobacco abstinence as well as disease treatment outcomes in low-resource environments?
  • What are the barriers to integrating tobacco control interventions into the existing HIV and TB prevention and treatment context in LMICs?
  • What is the cost-effectiveness of integrating smoking cessation within HIV and TB treatment? What interventions can be effectively introduced to low-resource settings in LMICs?
  • How does the social and behavioral context of tobacco use in PLHIV in LMICs, including the use and abuse of other substances, influence tobacco use behavior and cessation outcomes?
  • What policy interventions could be embedded in HIV and TB control programs that would serve to improve the outcomes of cessation or prevention efforts at both a clinical and population level?
