The World AIDS Foundation (WAF) announces its intent to support
research and education relating to Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome
(AIDS) in the developing world.  The goal of the WAF is to facilitate
information exchange and assist developing countries in responding to
the AIDS pandemic.

The WAF is particularly interested in projects that are catalytic and
once in place could have a multiplicative effect.  The WAF also is
particularly interested in supporting applications that originate from
developing countries and that emphasize collaboration between and among
scientists from developed and developing countries.  The main area of
interest of the WAF is education for health professionals in developing
countries, especially in-country training.  This includes highly
focused workshops that enhance the scientific process and transfer
knowledge needed in the effort against the Human Immunodeficiency Virus
(HIV) infection and AIDS.

The limit of any single funding request to the WAF is $200,000.


Concept letters and applications may be prepared in either English or
French.  Applicants should submit concept letters for initial
consideration.  Following review of concept letters, applicants may be
invited to submit complete proposals.  The annual deadline for receipt
of concept letters is February 1.

Foundation are to be directed by mail or by FAX to:
