Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement for Prevention and Treatment through a Comprehensive Care Continuum for HIV-affected Adolescents in Resource Constrained Settings (PATC3H) (UG3/UH3)
NICHD intends to publish a new Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to seek applications for research on an area of public health significance: prevention of new HIV infections among adolescents and young adults (10-24 years) at risk of HIV and the identification of, linkage to and retention in care of youth living with HIV in low-to-middle income countries.


Every seven years, the NIH reviews the structure and funding of its HIV clinical research networks. This “network recompetition” process involves decisions that will help determine the focus and priorities of its HIV clinical trial networks through 2027, as well as the number and structures of the various networks that undertake this research. These are critical questions for advocates to weigh in on—whether you are in the US or not. A webinar will take place Tuesday, September 5, 2:00-3:00pm, which will include a brief introductory presentation from Dr. Dieffenbach followed by a Q&A session. NIAID is also currently accepting public comments and questions online. Find out more information and register for the webinar HERE. They are also seeking input on scientific direction, function and structure of networks and trials is vital to our shared success. Big ideas and small details are both welcome. Share your thought, perspective, and questions to the NIH HERE.
