Fogarty International Center for Advanced Study in the Health Sciences at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in order to support international medical and behavioral research and to train international researchers..[1]

In March 2017, the Trump Administration proposed cuts to the NIH budget, including elimination of the Fogarty Center, saving $69 million.[2]
