Grant Amount: Approximately $10,300,000 for one award to implement the EVIHT project.
The U.S. Government (USG) Post-Earthquake Strategy in Haiti follows the Government of Haiti’s Action Plan For National Recovery and Development of Haiti, complements the international community’s efforts in Haiti, and targets sectors in which we can add the most value. Through USAID and our other USG partners, the USG is supporting four essential pillars of Haiti’s development, one of which is health and other basic services. The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) Five-Year Strategy focuses on improving health outcomes, increasing program sustainability and integration, and strengthening health systems. Prevention activities focus on support for country-owned programs that provide a continuum of linked prevention, care, and treatment services. To support this effort the U.S. Agency for International Development is requesting applications from qualified organizations to implement the EVIHT Project “Avoid HIV and its Transmission”. One Cooperative Agreement may be awarded. At the end of this agreement, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/Haiti expects the implementer to achieve the following results. (1) Increase HIV risk perception and self-efficacy to prevent HIV transmission among at-risk individuals in the general population; (2) Strengthen capacity of the Direction de la Promotion de la Santé et de la Protection de l’Environnement/Ministère de la Santé (DPSPE/MOH) and the National AIDS Communication Program (NACP) to lead the HIV response and to harmonize the integration of HIV prevention activities within the basic package of primary health care; (3) Enhance specific prevention activities that have been identified as gap areas. The specific gap areas include: secondary prevention through Positive, Health, Dignity, and Prevention (PHDP) services; quality in and demand for prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) services; and lack of the post-exposure prophylaxis program in Haiti.
