East Africa International Epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS
Announcing the inaugural trainees for the Fogarty-IeDEA Mentorship Program (FIMP)
In collaboration with the Fogarty International Center (FIC) of the US National Institutes of Health, six IeDEA regions working in low- and middle-income countries have created training opportunities for participants of FIC D43 HIV research and training programs, as well as for IeDEA regional investigators.
The FIMP is designed to help trainees develop skills in study design, data management, analysis, interpretation and dissemination of research involving large HIV clinical databases generated within IeDEA. As part of the FIMP, mentees will have access to IeDEA regional data for analyses that are conducted under the supervision of their respective IeDEA region.
