Alabama: AIDS Programs Renewed

July 19, 2011

A 10-year-old program based at the University of Alabama-Birmingham has received a five-year, $31.7 million renewal grant to continue its work fighting HIV/AIDS in teens. This will be the third five-year project for the Adolescent Medicine Trials Network for HIV/AIDS Interventions, which targets ethnic minority youths. The program will expand from its current 15 cities to 20, said Craig Wilson, principal investigator and a professor at the UAB School of Public Health. The funding comes from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, with assistance from the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the National Institute of Mental Health.
