The NIMH and NINR invite research grant applications to address critical gaps in research on the mental health and psychosocial needs of children in low-resource countries facing the loss of parents or caretakers due to HIV/AIDS. For the purpose of this RFA, children affected by HIV/AIDS are those who: (a) are age 21 years or younger, (b) may be infected or uninfected, (c) have lost or will lose one or both parents (or other caregivers) to HIV-associated mortality, and (d) reside in low-resource countries facing high adult HIV prevalence or an expanding HIV epidemic. Psychosocial problems common to affected youth which may initiate or exacerbate mental disorders, substance abuse, or HIV-risk behavior are classified in the following ways: primary support group (e.g., death of family members), social environment (e.g., HIV-associated stigma), educational (e.g., illiteracy), occupational (e.g., child labor), housing (e.g., child-headed households), ec!
onomic status (e.g., extreme poverty), access to health care, legal/criminal involvement or victimhood, and other psychosocial and environmental problems (e.g., disasters, wars, etc.). Low-resource countries are defined here as those meeting the World Bank's (2002) criterion for developing country status (i.e., those with estimated gross national incomes per capita (GNI) of less than US$2935). The participating ICs intend to commit approximately $1.2 million in total costs in FY05 to support 2 6 new competing grants submitted in response to this RFA. This RFA will use the R01 and R21 award mechanisms. Any individual with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research is invited to work with his/her institution to develop an application for support. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH programs. There is no limit to the number of applic!
ations an applicant may submit in response to this RFA. Applications m
ust be prepared using the PHS 398 research grant application instructions and forms (rev. 5/2001). The PHS 398 is available at http://www.grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/phs398.html in an interactive format.
