Promoting Adolescent Health through School-Based HIV/STD Prevention and School-Based Surveillance
Grant Amount: Approximate Total Fiscal Year 1 Funding: $13,000,000; Approximate Total Fiscal Year 2-5 Funding: $17,000,000; Approximate Total Project Period Funding: $81,000,000.
The primary purpose of this funding is to build the capacity of districts and schools to effectively contribute to the reduction of HIV infection and other STD among adolescents; the reduction of disparities in HIV infection and other STD experienced by specific adolescent sub-populations; and the conducting of school-based surveillance through youth risk behavior survey (YRBS) and Profiles implementation. Program activities are expected to reinforce efforts to reduce teen pregnancy rates, due to the shared risk factors for, and intervention activities to address, HIV infection, other STD, and teen pregnancy.
Awarded state education agency/territorial education agency (agencies) (SEA/TEA) will help districts and awarded local education agency (agencies) (LEA) will help schools implement exemplary sexual health education (ESHE), increase adolescents’ access to key sexual health services (SHS), and establish safe and supportive environment (environments)(SSE) for students and staff. They will also track, and educate stakeholders on, policies related to HIV/STD prevention. State, Territorial, and Local agencies (STL) program activities may include assessing, implementing, and enforcing policies and monitoring curricula use, as well as providing guidance, training, and TA on adopted policies and curricula. STL awardees will conduct the YRBS and Profiles and disseminate survey results.
This FOA is designed around four strategies. The work implemented within these strategies should be sustainable beyond the project period in the targeted jurisdictions. The four strategies are:
Strategy 1: School-Based Surveillance (SURV): STL agencies awarded under this strategy will collect and systematically use data to guide program planning and improvement. Over the project period, STL education and health agencies will collect, analyze, and disseminate data on adolescent health risk behaviors, including sexual risk behaviors, using the YRBS, and on school health policies and practices, including sexual health policies and practices, using Profiles. Strategy 2: School-Based HIV/STD Prevention (SB): Education agencies awarded under this strategy will implement the following planning activities, as well as the activities outlined under each required approach (ESHE, SHS, SSE, and POLICY). All awardees will implement specific activities related to ESHE and POLICY to help all districts/schools in their jurisdiction to improve HIV/STD prevention policies and practices for all secondary school students. In addition, SEA/TEA will implement targeted TA activities in priority, high-risk districts within the awarded jurisdictions during the duration of the FOA, and LEA will do the same in priority schools. STL will also implement TA activities to help the priority districts/schools to intensively address specific HIV/STD prevention needs of one group of youth at disproportionate risk (YDR). Strategy 3: Capacity Building Assistance for School-Based HIV/STD Prevention (CBA): Awarded NGO will provide effective CBA to support sustainable initiatives in districts and schools that contribute to reductions in HIV/STD infections among adolescents, and reductions in disparities in HIV/STD infections experienced by specific adolescent sub-populations. NGO will be awarded to provide CBA for either SEA/TEA or LEA on one of three approaches (ESHE, SHS, or SSE). NGO may apply for more than one type of agency and more than one approach. Strategy 4: School-Centered HIV/STD Prevention for Young Men Who Have Sex with Men (YMSM): Strategy 4 focuses on meeting the needs of a specific target population: teenage males who have engaged in sexual activity with partners of the same sex, as well as teenage males who have not engaged in sexual activity with partners of the s
