Behavioral and Serological Survey (BSS) for HIV and Syphilis among Diamond Mine Workers in Angola (PEPFAR)

Grant Amount: Approximate Current Fiscal Year Funding: $ 500,000; Approximate Total Project Period Funding: $ 1,500,000.

The goal and objectives of the program in Angola is to provide information that will serve as the baseline for a BSS among diamond miners in the key areas in Angola for the purpose of monitoring the epidemic and informing decision-making for future prevention programs targeting this population.

The purpose of this FOA is to implement a behavioral and serologic survey (BSS) of persons working in the diamond mines of Angola, and to make recommendations for prevention of HIV infection among miners and surrounding communities. This initiative will assist the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Government of the Republic of Angola through the Instituto Nacional de Luta contra a SIDA (INLS), in their collaborative efforts to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the Angola mining industry.
