Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Prevention Projects for the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and United States Virgin Islands
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is providing an estimated $3,600,000 for this funding opportunity.
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to implement comprehensive human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention programs to reduce morbidity, mortality, and related health disparities. In accordance with the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/uploads/NHAS.pdf) and High-Impact HIV Prevention (http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/strategy/hihp/index.htm), this FOA focuses on addressing the national HIV epidemic by reducing new infections, increasing access to care, and promoting health equity. The aforementioned will be achieved by enhancing community-based organizations’ capacities to increase HIV testing, link HIV positive persons to medical care, increase referral to partner service, provide prevention services for HIV positive individuals and high risk individuals with unknown/negative serostatus, and increase program monitoring and accountability. Standard performance measures for HIV prevention programs that are consistent with the focus of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy on improving performance and accountability are included in this FOA. The organization’s Comprehensive and Innovative Client-Centered HIV Prevention Program will consist of the following program components: (1) program promotion (2) client recruitment; (3) addressing health disparities; (4) enhanced HIV testing; (5) strategies to support linkage, re-engagement, and retention in care; and (6) a combination of structural, behavioral, and/or biomedical interventions that supports maximum reach and optimal outcomes.
PS13-1310 is a competing continuation of the currently CDC funded FOA, PS08-803: HIV Prevention Projects for the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands, which has ongoing HIV prevention activities conducted solely by non-profit organizations with 501(c)(3) IRS status. Funded PS08-803 CBOs are currently providing HIV prevention services for HIV positive and high risk negative persons at risk for acquiring or transmitting HIV infection who reside in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands. Funding for PS13-1310 will support the continued implementation of the current PS08-803 programs to ensure the HIV prevention programs are in support of goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy and the High Impact HIV Prevention approach. The two year competing continuation supports alignment of existing programs with National and CDC efforts to maximize resources and streamline programs and the associated reporting requirements. The competing continuation will enable CDC to align its community-based HIV prevention programs allowing for the development of a comprehensive, cost-effective, and streamlined consolidated community-based HIV prevention program model.
