The purpose of this notice is to alert the scientific community that 
the Fogarty International Center, National Institute of Child Health 
and Human Development (NICHD), National Institute of Dental and 
Craniofacial Research and National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) 
will inactivate the program announcement PA-02-114, the Fogarty 
International Research Collaboration Award for HIV-AIDS (AIDS FIRCA), 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-02-114.html.  After the 
September 1, 2003 receipt date, FIC will not accept, review, or fund 
new or re-competing AIDS FIRCA R03 applications for the January 1, 2004 
receipt date and beyond.

The low application response to the AIDS FIRCA program over the last 
ten years, and particularly in the last five years, coupled with the 
increasing number of new opportunities for funding for international 
AIDS-related research significantly alters the uniqueness of and need 
for the AIDS FIRCA program.

Researchers are encouraged to explore the new opportunities, including

DISEASES AT NIAID INTERNATIONAL SITES (IRID-NIAID),
