NIH Common Fund 10 Year Commemoration

NIH Common Fund 10 Year Commemoration

July 31, 2014 By admin


ACCME joins NIH in celebrating Decade of Discovery through her Common Fund initiative. The NIH’s investment in medical education and research conducted in Africa by African scientists is resulting in a growing synergy. Investments in training programs sponsored by the NIH Fogarty International Center and others have developed the framework to harness the catalytic potential of the Common Fund H3Africa and MEPI programs aimed at increasing medical and research capacity in Africa, strengthening research faculty and promoting the retention of health care providers. H3ACCME is also a beneficiary with research funding in the area of common carcinoma cervical cancer, as well as the vaginal microbiome and the human papilloma virus.
According to NIH Director, Francis Collins (M.D., Ph.D), the success of the Roadmap/Common Fund is an outcome of its compelling founding principles and the leadership and dedication of many NIH staff, but especially the creativity and enthusiastic participation of the research community.
