International Collaborations in Infectious Disease Research (ICIDR)

NIAID has a long-standing commitment to global health and supporting research on infectious diseases that affect the international community. In 1980, the ICIDR program was established to provide funding to U.S. institutions that engage with foreign institutions in tropical medicine and emerging infectious diseases research.

ICIDR establishes a relationship between foreign (non-U.S.) and U.S. institutions to support the study of infectious diseases of great global health importance in resource-constrained countries. Through this relationship, investigators will be able to increase scientific knowledge, promote research capacity in these countries, and enhance the international research experience of all investigators involved.
