Community-based Interventions to Increase HIV Testing and HIV Care Utilization Grant
Grant Amount: Estimated Funds Available: up to $1,000,000 in FY 2012 – 2013.
The purpose of the Community-based Interventions to Increase HIV Testing and HIV Care Utilization Grant Program is to improve early identification of new HIV cases and to increase the HIV care acquisition and maintenance of newly diagnosed individuals in minority communities disproportionately affected by the HIV epidemic. The Kaiser Permanente Community-based Interventions to Increase HIV Testing and HIV Care Utilization Grant Program incorporates three main goals: to prevent new HIV infections; to identify HIV positive patients sooner, get them into high quality HIV care sooner and remain in such care; and to reduce disparities among minority populations disproportionately impacted by HIV disease (particularly the gay, African-American, and Latino communities).
Awards will be made to community-based projects which focus on the following: (1) Reducing New HIV Infections: Identification of HIV infection among recently infected adolescents and adults; (2) Increasing HIV Care Utilization: Improved access to and utilization of HIV care, particularly among newly-diagnosed adolescents and adults.
To achieve these objectives, the following outcomes are expected from grantee organizations: (1) Increased HIV testing among populations at risk for HIV; (2) Improved health care utilization among HIV infected adults and adolescents. All projects funded under this initiative must be able to produce quantifiable documented results that demonstrate whether and how the strategies and interventions funded under the Community-based Interventions to Increase HIV Testing and HIV Care Utilization Grant made a difference in the improvement of these health outcomes in the targeted population(s). Thus, individual and cross-site evaluation of projects will be required. This initiative is being undertaken by Kaiser Permanente to affect HIV at a population level via community approaches to prevention, intervention, and care in minority communities most affected by HIV.
