Increasing HIV/AIDS Program Capacity through Human Resources Capacity Building to Support the Transition of the Kenya HIV Program to Local Organizations under the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)

Total Funding Amount for this grant is $15,000,000. Approximate current fiscal year funding: $2,000,000.

Under the leadership of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, as part of the President's Emergency Plan, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (HHS/CDC) works with host countries and other key partners to assess the needs of each country and design a customized program of assistance that fits within the host nation's strategic plan and partnership framework.

In 2009 the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) issued a directive for PEPFAR to transition HIV/AIDS program implementation activities to local organizations whenever possible. In response to this, the US Government Mission in the Republic of Kenya has been building the health sector human resources capacity through in-depth mentoring programs that promote local leadership in HIV response and management. While these initiatives have facilitated an increase in public health management capabilities, critical gaps remain in program management, health economics, informatics, monitoring and evaluation, and evidence-based programming. The HIV/AIDS response in Kenya requires competent health sector professionals that have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to inform program planning and implementation efforts. The goal of the program in Kenya is to develop and sustain a national capacity building program for selected health care professionals and local organizations to support the transition of the HIV programs to Kenyan local organizations. For more details about this funding opportunity, see the grant announcement.
