The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has a long history of biomedical and behavioral research collaboration with Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) countries. Currently, research and training opportunities exist with several LAC countries. These opportunities are listed below.

Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) countries have made important progress in increasing their scientific research capacity in world-class laboratories, effectively using advanced technologies and establishing public institutions to support scientific and technological innovation. FIC's Division of International Relations has developed a comprehensive plan through partnerships and strategic alliances with other NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs), NIH Offices, other agencies from the U.S. government, and regional and international organizations to enhance cooperation between NIH and LAC countries. The following are the main components:
