  • Funding Opportunity Announcement: NIH Streamlining mental health interventions for youth living with HIV in Low- and Middle-Income Countries ​


    Funder's Application Deadline: 12 August 2023

    There is a practical need to develop streamlined versions of mental health interventions for youth living with HIV (YLWH) that can be feasibly implemented and scaled up in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The purpose of this R01 Research Project Grant is to use novel methods to streamline evidence-based mental health interventions for YLWH so that they require fewer resources to deliver while still leading to clinically meaningful improvements in mental health and HIV outcomes.  
    All research should focus on streamlining an existing, evidence-based mental health intervention. Initial work may be proposed to tailor the intervention to YLWH within their specific cultural context, to ensure cultural relevance, and to add a retention in HIV care and/or medication adherence counselling component.

    Award details:  

    • Application budgets are not limited but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project. 
    • Maximum project period is 5 years.
