The NIH AIDS International Training and Research Program (AITRP) supports innovative, collaborative training programs that contribute to building sustainable research capacity in HIV/AIDS and HIV-related conditions at institutions in low and middle-income countries with which the applicant institution has ongoing research collaborations (“Low- and middle-income countries” are defined using the World Bank classification system at These research-training programs will strengthen scientific knowledge and skills to enhance prevention of, and treatment and care for, HIV/AIDS and HIV-related conditions in these countries.

The capacity of institutions in low- and middle-income countries to conduct integrated prevention and care research across the full range of conditions and issues that relate to care of adult and pediatric patients with HIV/AIDS in their country need to continue to be strengthened and expanded. In addition to the identification of effective interventions, the ability to evaluate the economic and social impacts of these interventions will be crucial to guide policy makers as they develop policies and programs to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic in low- and middle-income countries.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, August 11, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to a 3-page summary of the proposed project, briefly outlining the following: 1) collaborating institutions; 2) anticipated goals, objectives and activities of the training program; 3) how the proposed research training plan will strengthen the research capacity at the foreign institution(s) to address the HIV-related health priorities in the country(ies); and 4) how the research training program will further strengthen the international research capacity at the U.S. institution .
