Description: Purpose. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is intended to appeal to a broad audience of alcohol and HIV/AIDS researchers, including alcohol researchers with no prior experience in HIV/AIDS research, but with a keen appreciation for the relationship between problem drinking and HIV/AIDS and a strong interest in acquiring such experience; HIV/AIDS researchers with no prior alcohol research experience who realize the importance of more intensive alcohol interventions to improving clinical outcomes among HIV+ individuals; and those with prior research experience in the area of co-occurring HIV/AIDS and alcohol and other substance abuse. The primary objectives for this announcement are to increase research : 1) to characterize the relative importance of reducing alcohol misuse in the prevention of acquisition and transmission of HIV in order to identify and apply appropriate alcohol and HIV interventions as public health measures, 2) to more fully understand and prevent the progression of HIV disease in the presence of continued alcohol exposure and 3) to develop operational research frameworks for addressing the occurrence and persistence of infections in high-risk populations (e.g. minority women, young gay men, etc.), and translate findings these targeted populations. Given the breadth of research objectives included in this announcement, potential applicants are encouraged to carefully review all sections of the announcement for research opportunities.
