Call For Proposal 2012 - Fondation de France: AIDS, health and development: gender and HIV

Posted by Shofi Fida Saturday, June 16, 2012 0 comments
Fondation de France wishes to draw the interest of researchers in academic disciplines such as social sciences (sociology, anthropology, etc.), epidemiology, public health or applied research. Fondation de France will particularly focus on young researchers (PhD or postdoctoral students).
The goal of Foundation de France is to support projects that will help the targeted populations in the short or medium term.

Geographic areas:
Research fields will include the following geographic areas:
• French overseas departments in America (French Caribbean Islands and French Guyana);
• African countries;
• In Asia : Cambodia, India, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam;
• In South America: Brazil and Argentina.

Special attention will be paid to projects focusing on at least one of the following topics:
• the impact of HIV on reproductive health;
• co-morbidities and co-infections (e.g. Papillomavirus infection HPV);
• positive or negative consequences on women of partial efficacy prevention tools (microbicides, circumcision...);
• violence against women and its fallout in terms of HIV;
• hindrances to the involvement of men in the fight against the epidemic, either as an individual (within the family unit), or as a member of a group (within the community), and proposed means of overcoming these hindrances.

The support from the Fondation de France will, in a matter of priority, provide grants to research teams. Part of the grant can be used to finance the salary or as mobility grants for a post-doctoral researcher and/or for a PhD student.
The support will consist in annual (possibly renewable) or multi-year grants (with a maximum duration of 3 years). The “AIDS research” programme of the Fondation de France manages for 2012 a global budget of approximately 500,000 Euros.

Proposal must be received before October 15, 2012 for the second session. The grant application form should be submitted in two printed copies AND one electronic copy.
