Autism Speaks and the Shafallah Center for Children with Special Needs in Doha, Qatar continue their partnership designed to increase global autism awareness and help the Shafallah Center to become an international leader in autism genetics research and service delivery.

For the first time in 2008, Autism Speaks launched funding mechanisms designed exclusively to support international epidemiology research, and committed $1.5 million to a number of new multi-year projects. In addition to ongoing projects in Bangladesh, India, South Korea, and Taiwan, Autism Speaks' international epidemiology portfolio now also includes the first-ever autism prevalence study in South Africa as well as studies in New Delhi and Goa, India.
