Executive Summary

This initiative encourages HIV/AIDS-related research within the mission of the NIDDK that is aligned with NIH HIV/AIDS research priorities. The most recent priorities are outlined in NOTOD- 20-018, UPDATE: NIH HIV/AIDS Research Priorities and Guidelines for Determining HIV/AIDS Funding. The previous version of this initiative, High Priority HIV/AIDS Research within the Mission of the NIDDK, was successful at attracting impactful projects on HIV cure and HIV comorbidities, coinfections, and complications (CCCs) within the NIDDK’s mission. This renewal seeks to continue to build the NIDDK’s HIV/AIDS research portfolio with projects that address the most significant issues related to CCCs and cure within its mission.
