The CDC has awarded $4.5 million to UCSFS Institute for Global Health

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has awarded $4.5 million to UCSF's Institute for Global Health, in partnership with UCSF's AIDS Research Institute, to create the Center for International AIDS Support, Training, and Evaluation (CIASTE). The partnership also will include the University of Washington's Center for AIDS and STDs through its International Training and Education Center on HIV.

"CIASTE has been established to assist the CDC's Global AIDS Program in a variety of AIDS prevention, research, educational and treatment activities in resource-constrained countries that have been hard hit by HIV/AIDS. The consortium will lead teams in four component areas--training, technical assistance, operations research, and monitoring/evaluation--and will draw support from five affiliated partners," said CIASTE's principal investigator, George W. Rutherford, MD, UCSF professor of preventive medicine and epidemiology and interim director of UCSF's Institute for Global Health (IGH).

The five affiliated institutional partners are the California Department of Health Services, Children's Hospital and Research Center at Oakland, San Francisco Department of Public Health, Stanford University School of Medicine, and UC Berkeley School of Public Health. Three regional coordinating centers will be set up in Brazil, India, and Zimbabwe to assist the CDC Global AIDS Program, which currently has programs in twenty-four African, Asian, and Central/South American countries.

"This is a chance for academic institutions to bring their research expertise to bear on critical public health programs being established by CDC in some of the places worst hit by HIV/AIDS in the world. For instance, UCSF's IGH recently did the worldwide evaluation of the 'Roll Back Malaria Initiative', and UCSF's AIDS Research Institute has a strong track record of HIV/AIDS prevention research in Brazil, Zimbabwe, India, Cambodia, Vietnam, and China," said Rutherford.
