NEW Research Opportunities Centering the Health of Women Across the HIV Research Continuum

The NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) and Office of AIDS Research (OAR), in partnership with our Institute, Center, and Office (ICO) partners are issuing this Notice to highlight interest in receiving HIV research and training grant applications that explicitly and intersectionally center the health needs of cisgender women and girls, and gender-diverse people.

Despite tremendous scientific advances that have translated to substantial progress in confronting the HIV epidemic, women – and particularly women of color, young women and girls, and transgender women – and gender-diverse individuals remain disproportionately affected by HIV. An intersectional, equity-informed, data-driven approach is essential to advance HIV research and clinical care for all women with or impacted by HIV across their lifespan and to end the HIV pandemic (Barr et al, 2024).

Institute and Center-specific areas of high interest are specified in the Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) . A comprehensive list of NIH-wide research opportunities to center the health of women across the HIV research continuum can be found at NOT-OD-24-117Applicants are strongly encouraged to discuss proposed submissions for this initiative with the scientific contact for the proposed Institute or Center prior to submission to ensure alignment with Institute or Center mission areas and priorities for this initiative.
