NIH, PEPFAR Award $130 Million to Improve Health Systems in African Countries

October 7, 2010

The NIH and PEPFAR have teamed up and given a "series of grants worth a total of $130 million awarded to universities and health institutes in a dozen countries in sub-Saharan Africa," Nature's blog "The Great Beyond" reports. "The 5-year initiative funds African universities partnering with institutions in the United States. Eleven $10 million grants specifically focus on medical education and research training relating to HIV/AIDS, but smaller awards will take a broader tack," according to the blog (Katsnelson, 10/7). Overall, about "30 regional partners" will work with "20 U.S. collaborators," according to a press release issued by NIH. "The program is designed to support PEPFAR's goals to train and retain 140,000 new health care workers and improve the capacity of partner countries to deliver primary health care," according to the release (10/7).
