Description

In November 1988, Public Law (P.L.) 100-607 introduced Section 487A of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 USC 288-1), authorizing the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to establish a program of educational loan repayment to attract additional health professionals into Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) research. The mission of the NIH AIDS Research Loan Repayment Program (AIDS-LRP) is to attract highly qualified physicians, nurses, and scientists to HIV/AIDS research by countering the growing economic disincentives to embark on biomedical research careers, using loan repayment as an incentive.  .
