Grant Amount: Approximately $3,800,000 is expected to be available annually to fund 12 grantees.
This announcement solicits applications for the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part F Community Based Dental Partnership Program (CBDPP). The primary purpose of the CBDPP is to increase access to oral health care for patients with HIV (PLWHA) in areas that remain underserved, especially in communities without dental education programs, and to train dental and hygiene students and dental residents to deliver HIV/AIDS dental care in the community. Eligible applicants must work collaboratively with community-based dental providers (such as community-based organizations or agencies that currently provide or plan to provide oral health services) to address unmet oral health needs of vulnerable populations with HIV.
Funded programs are expected to: (1) Increase access to comprehensive and culturally competent oral health services for PLWHA; (2) Establish and manage hands-on clinical rotations for dental and/or dental hygiene students and dental residents in community-based settings; (3) Collaborate and coordinate between accredited dental and dental hygiene education programs and community-based organizations and providers in the delivery of oral health services to PLWHA, especially in unserved and underserved rural and urban areas; (4) Collect, manage, and report data that will assess/describe the oral health service delivery and educational components of funded programs; (5) Ensure patient confidentiality and establish a system for control of HIV-positive patient records; (6) Involve consumers as partners in their own care. Involve them in planning, implementing, and evaluating the project.
