Autism Speaks continues the existing international collaboration between both Qatar and the Pan American Autism Awareness and Training Initiative (PAAATI). PAATI, which preceded the formation of GAPH, involves collaboration between Autism Speaks, the National Institutes of Child Health Development (NICHD), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the CARSO Health Institute, Clinica Mexicana de Autismo (CLIMA), and the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR). 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. In South Africa, investigators will not only explore the prevalence of autism but also lay the groundwork to investigate the hypothesized relationship between autism and HIV infection.
