Brief Description

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support the development and evaluation of tobacco cessation interventions tailored to HIV-positive populations, including those with comorbidities such as tuberculosis (TB), in low-resource settings in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). In particular, this FOA aims to bring together transdisciplinary teams of investigators to adapt interventions developed and tested in other challenging settings or low-resource populations and to test their robustness among persons living with HIV (PLWH) in LMICs. Responsive applications must propose research that will be conducted with PLWH in one or more LMICs and will inform efforts to reduce tobacco-related morbidity and mortality among PLWH. Research may also address the behavioral and sociocultural factors and conditions that are associated with tobacco use among PLWH and may also address tobacco-related health disparities among PLWH.
