The NIH Global Partnerships for Social Science AIDS Research between US (or other developed country) and non-US scientists will support the strengthening of the behavioral and social science research capability and capacity of investigators, research teams, and/or institutions in developing countries affected by the HIV epidemic. Applications will be accepted for work in any resource-poor country that reports HIV prevalence higher than 1 percent of the adult population (aged 15-49) or can demonstrate that HIV prevalence in specific populations has increased in the past five years.

Applicants should propose projects designed to  study social and behavioral science questions related to HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment in their local environments; develop research infrastructure and strengthen the capacity of institutions and investigators to conduct such HIV/AIDS social and behavioral science research; and establish and/or enhance linkages among local in-country investigators, public health officials, community institutions, and health care providers, including traditional health practitioners. It is anticipated that the research projects undertaken will contribute to the field as well as enhance the ability of these investigators to compete successfully for HIV/AIDS-related funding under other research grant mechanisms. Investigators undertaking research in response to this RFA should be mindful of the efforts in their country to develop and implement strategic plans on the national and community levels to address the local HIV/AIDS-related challenges and problems.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, September 8, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should summarize 1) the proposed research project(s) and 2) infrastructure development and capacity-strengthening support requested and the activities proposed.


Budgets are capped at $350,000 of direct costs per year. Awards may be for up to five years.
