The HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) is offering a scholarship program for early-career investigators. The HPTN Scholars Program seeks to increase opportunities for scientists from groups under-represented in HIV prevention research. For the international version of the program, current MD, PhD, and MBChB students may apply, along with individuals having already graduated with their terminal degree. In both programs, applicants should desire to work with a mentor scientist in the Network to complete a research project based upon an existing HPTN research study.
- Develop a research project and complete it within the program cycle
- Present the findings and submit a manuscript
- Become knowledgeable of the process of doing research in NIH-funded HIV networks and have the opportunity to build their research networks within the context of the HPTN
Scholars are provided funding to cover a portion of their time (typically ~ 10-30%) and expenses including travel and research materials/supplies. Successful applicants will be funded for 18 months, subject to certain restrictions.
Initial proposal drafts are due 18 November 2016. Full applications due 2 December 2016.
For more information about the HPTN Scholars Programs, contact Ehamilton@fhi360.org.
More general program information is available on the HPTN website.
More specific information about the international program component and the application documents, are available here.
Services for migrants and refugees from Ukraine – HIV/TB care with a focus on key populations
Due to the increasing flows of refugees from Ukraine because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EECA Regional Platform created a spreadsheet to fill contacts details of face-to-face and online services for refugees and migrants (with a focus on HIV/TB care and key population groups).
If you provide such services or know verified providers, please fill out the spreadsheet at your earliest convenience, and, please, update it as more verified information is available. These can be services for national citizens if they are also accessible to international migrants and refugees.
