Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) International Core


Since 1995, the UW CFAR International Clinical and Prevention Research Core has worked to promote effective HIV research in a global context. UW CFAR priority countries include Kenya and Peru.  We also support CFAR-affiliated investigators working in Senegal, Mozambique, Uganda, South Africa, India, Brazil and China. The Center for AIDS Research, part of the wider UW Center for AIDS and STD, is a WHO/PAHO Collaborating Center for AIDS and STD.


The UW CFAR International Core supports, facilitates and coordinates research on HIV/AIDS by University of Washington faculty in developing countries by providing research mentorship, logistical, operational and infrastructure support as well as small pilot grants.

Long-Term Goals

  • Promote and facilitate HIV/AIDS research by UW CFAR-affiliated investigators in developing countries
  • Develop long-term, sustainable partnerships for HIV research and training in a focused set of developing country settings, enabling collaborating investigators and institutions in those countries to achieve greater independence with responsibilities and roles equivalent to those of the UW-based CFAR-affiliated faculty and institutions
  • Support innovative international HIV/AIDS research in women and children.


  • Infrastructure grants
  • Pilot research awards
  • Laboratory QC and infrastructure support
  • Shipping and procurement
  • Field advance administration
  • Mentoring and consulting advice for international research
  • Free on-line human subjects and GCP training
