Fogarty's Informatics Training for Global Health program is intended to increase informatics expertise in low- and middle-income countries by training scientists to design information systems and apply computer-supported management and analysis to biomedical research. Medicine and biomedical research are knowledge-based fields that depend upon the sharing of information. Informatics, the science of handling large volumes of information, can help link physicians and researchers around the world so that they can share knowledge ranging from the best care of patients to issues in collaborative research.

"The application of informatics allows our clinicians in low-resource settings to leverage new technologies in order to speed discoveries," said Fogarty Director Roger I. Glass, M.D, Ph.D.  "These new awards will enable researchers to better analyze data, compare results among populations and quickly share findings with colleagues around the world."

The grants are being awarded to both new and ongoing informatics programs at various international sites.
