Stigma and Global Health Research Program: The purpose of this initiative is to stimulate investigator-initiated research on the role of stigma in health, and on how to intervene to prevent or mitigate its negative effects on the health and welfare of individuals, groups and societies world-wide. Collaborative interdisciplinary applications are particularly encouraged. The following Institutes and Centers from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS): the Health Research Services Administration (HRSA), the NIH including: the Fogarty International Center (FIC), National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NCHMD), National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), Office of AIDS Research, Office of Behavioral and Social Science Research (OBSSR), Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH); and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), seek domestic and international applications which address stigma-related issues, across a variety of global public health problems, among individuals and in society. Relevant issues include: 1. How stigma and its consequences, such as discrimination affect health (e.g. through physical and psychological abuse, denial of economic opportunities, poor provision and seeking of health care); 2. How stigma associated with specific health conditions interacts with stigma associated with individual or group characteristics (such as gender, race, religion, sexual orientation and nationality); 3. How to prevent and mitigate the negative effects of stigma and discrimination on health and health care; 4. Development of quantitative and qualitative methods and techniques to investigate, measure and analyze the extent, degree and effects of stigma and the effectiveness of current and new interventions; 5. Examination of the cultural, social, political and economic dimensions of stigma and its manifestations; 6. Methods and safeguards to ensure safety of vulnerable research subjects. Such research, which may range from basic to clinical and operational, requires expertise across a broad range of bio-medical, social and behavioral science fields. The participants in this RFA therefore encourage interdisciplinary, domestic and international collaboration to build the scientific foundation of stigma research related to health. Meritorious applications must also be relevant to the mission and interests of one or more of the participating Institutes or Centers. This RFA is based on recommendations developed in conjunction with the NIH sponsored International Conference on Stigma and Global Health: Developing a Research Agenda, September 5-7, 2001, Bethesda, MD. Applicants are encouraged to refer to the stigma conference website ( for extensive information related to the topic of this RFA including the agenda with links to speaker abstracts, commissioned background papers and a video-cast of the conference.
