Funding

Population-based HIV Impact Assessments in Resource-Constrained Settings under the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)

Description
Grant Amount: Approximate Current Fiscal Year Funding: $25,000,000; Approximate Total Project Period Funding: $125,000,000.

The goals of this FOA are to:
(1) Support the implementation of country-led, population-based HIV impact assessments to measure HIV-relevant services uptake and health outcomes and to monitor and inform policy and programming.
(2) Strengthen host country capacity and skills to conduct population-based HIV impact assessments.
(3) Use cost-effective, sustainable approaches and design elements leveraging current and evolving technologies.
(4) Facilitate the creation of primarily country-owned and publicly accessible data warehouses to maximize the use of collected survey data.
(5) Maximize utilization of assessment data for monitoring program impact by broadening access to quality data through improved data capture methodologies, robust data management and a web-based data warehouse.
(6) Facilitate future (secondary) use of collected biologic specimens.

The objectives of this FOA are to:
(1) Facilitate the implementation of standardized, household-based national and/or sub-national bio-behavioral surveys in the general population (assessment conduct) and improve the quality, validity and timeliness of data by deploying data capture and management technologies which utilize current cost effective technologies such as tablet, kiosk or web-based solutions selected to increase response rate, data accuracy and timeliness, and participant confidentiality and security. Monitor the quality of surveys with regard to sampling, survey response, adherence to consent and other human subject protection measures, data quality, specimen quality, and testing quality. (assessment conduct – smart use of technology, quality monitoring).
(2) Improve data availability and use of country-owned data sets while ensuring data integrity, participant confidentiality and security and appropriate data use through robust data governance implemented through cloud-based data warehousing strategies incorporated into assessment system design from the incept. Create a country-level, web-based, publicly accessible country-owned data set repository (public data access).
(3) Collect, transport, process, and store high quality specimens and establish local biologic specimen repositories (secondary biologic testing).
(4) Generate national and sub-national estimates of the burden of HIV disease, to characterize local HIV epidemics, to estimate HIV incidence and mortality, in the general population, and, as appropriate, in select locations (HIV data analysis, data estimates, report writing).
(5) Promote assessment designs and approaches that facilitate financial sustainability, and country ownership (sustainable assessment design).
(6) Transfer technology; strengthen in-country assessment skills and capacity, thus strengthening countries’ public health surveillance systems (training, skill and accountability transfer).
(7) Evaluate assessment methods and tools that potentially increase data timeliness, validity and quality by leveraging evolving technology and science. (operations research).

The purpose of this FOA is to provide technical assistance and/or conduct population-based HIV program impact surveys with the goal to strengthen the monitoring of impact and outcomes to more comprehensively inform national responses to HIV. These surveys use standardized methods, create publicly accessible data and specimen repositories, and improve survey methods to increase cost effectiveness and data quality, and support country ownership, local capacity strengthening as well as skills and technology transfer.
