The widget provides an easy way to find health disparities data related to the Healthy People 2020 objectives for the Leading Health Indicators (LHIs). LHIs are critical health issues that when addressed will help reduce the leading causes of death and preventable illnesses. Find out more about the widget HERE.

FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES

HIV/HCV Co-Infections in Substance Abusers (R01)
The purpose of this FOA is to fill gaps in our understanding of (a) the impact of substance abuse on HIV, HIV/HCV co-infection associated disease progression, (b) the pathogenic interactions between HIV and hepatitis C virus, (c) hepatic and non-hepatic co-morbidities associated with HIV/HCV-co-infections in people with substance abuse disorders (SUDs), and (d) the effectiveness of interferon-free direct acting antiviral (DAAs) drug regimens to treat HIV/HCV co-infections in people with SUDs.

Limited Competition – Cohort Studies of HIV/AIDS and Substance Abuse (U01)
The purpose of this Limited Competition FOA is to support the maintenance and expansion of these NIDA-funded cohorts to continue to address new emerging and/or high priority research on multidisciplinary aspects of HIV/AIDS and substance abuse. This FOA will provide continued support for recruiting and retaining participants in the cohort(s) to provide insight into the changing demographics of the HIV epidemic among this high risk population in the United States (U.S.).

Research in Transforming Health & Health Care Systems
The RWJF's new Research in Transforming Health and Health Care Systems (RTHS) call for proposals (CFP) seeks to fund rigorous, empirical studies that evaluate or predict the potential effects of policies or policy changes intended to transform health and health care systems. The 2017 RTHS CFP will focus on empirical and policy–relevant analyses that can inform strategies to ensure access to high-quality, affordable health care and insurance coverage.
