Funding Opportunity Announcement: 

Oral Health in People Living with HIV and Additional Non-Communicable Diseases (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The objective of this FOA is to encourage research that addresses gaps in our knowledge of the oral health status of people living with HIV (PLWH), with an emphasis on PLWH who also have non-communicable diseases (NCDs). It supports efforts to understand the combined effects of HIV, antiretroviral therapy (ART), and NCDs on oral health, and it encourages identification of approaches for prevention and treatment of oral diseases and assessment of treatment outcomes in PLWH with or without NCDs. These efforts could help to generate evidence for oral health treatment guidelines tailored to the needs of dental patients with HIV.

LOI Due date: June 29th, 2019
