Global Infectious Disease Research Training Program (D43)
This FOA encourages applications for the Global Infectious Disease (GID) Research Training Program from U.S. and low- and middle-income country (LMIC) institutions. The application should propose a collaborative training program that will strengthen the capacity of an LMIC institution to conduct infectious disease research.

Planning Grant for Global Infectious Disease Research Training Program (D71)
This FOA encourages applications for a planning grant from institutions in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to design a Global Infectious Disease (GID) Research Training Program in collaboration with U.S. institutions. Planning grants should describe a detailed vision for a research-training program that focuses on a major endemic or life-threatening emerging infectious disease, neglected tropical disease, infections that frequently occur as a co-infection in HIV infected individuals or infections associated with non-communicable disease conditions of public health importance in LMICs.

Investigator Initiated Extended Clinical Trial (R01)
This FOA invites applications for implementation of investigator-initiated clinical trials requiring an extended project period of 6 or 7 years. The trials can be any phase, must be hypothesis-driven, and related to the research mission of one of the participating ICs.
