Chris Beyrer, MD, MPH, Principal Investigator Taha E. Taha, MD, PhD, Country Director for Malawi The JHU Fogarty International Training and Research Program (JHU-AITRP) provides greatly needed opportunities for the training of Malawians in the fields of HIV, STDs, epidemiology, vaccinology, laboratory sciences, and informatics. This endeavor has been vital for the continuing success of research endeavors to control HIV and STDs in the country for the past 16 years. Both degree (Masters and Doctoral) and non-degree programs (short and long term training courses such as Summer Epidemiology, postdoctoral advanced training, and workshops) are supported by the JHU-AITRP It is noteworthy that most trainees have returned to Malawi, and several are in prominent policy positions. For example, Mr. Yusef Mwawa (MHS 1996) is the Minister of Health and Population; Dr. Richard Pendame (MPH 1998) was the Principal Secretary of the Ministry of Health (MOH); Dr. Biswick Mwale (MPH 1999) is the Manager National AIDS Commission (NAC); Dr. Habib Somanje (MPH 1998) is the MOH Controller for Preventive Services; Dr. Thomas Ndovi (PhD 2005) was the Vaccine Coordinator for the JHU-MOH-COM Research Project; and Dr. Newton Kumwenda (PhD 1996) is the Field Director of the JHU-MOH-COM Research Project in Malawi.
