Division of Infectious Diseases & International Health

The UVA Division of Infectious Diseases & International Health has a long tradition of excellence in research, patient care and education. Division faculty are extending the tradition into new frontiers of research, and training a new generation of physician-scientists to meet the challenges of infectious diseases in an increasingly “flat” global community.

Research is supported by more than $29 million in annual extramural funding in 8 departments and 4 divisions in the School of Medicine, including global health initiatives supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the NIH, and carried out with partners in countries around the world, among them Bangladesh, Brazil, Haiti, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda.
