Fogarty International Center

This notice describes a limited competition for supplements related to
tuberculosis to existing (and recompeting) Fogarty International Center (FIC)
AIDS International Training and Research Program (AITRP) and International
Training and Research in Emerging Infectious Diseases (ITREID) Program awards. 
Eligibility is limited because building upon the above-mentioned existing
investments in HIV/AIDS and infectious diseases is the most cost-effective
approach available for the FIC to respond to the urgent global need for training
and capacity building related to tuberculosis, including the great threat posed
by multiple drug resistant tuberculosis.  This flexible training program provides
for both long- and short-term training for foreign health scientists and is
closely related to NIAID-supported TB research in both the U.S. and abroad. 
Although competition for these supplements is limited, FIC wishes to call
attention to its efforts to respond to this emergent situation.
