The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces the availability of fiscal year 2014 funds for a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) to support CDC HIV related policies and programs by facilitating active communication, consultation, and peer-to-peer technical assistance to address emerging needs of directly funded urban health departments in the changing landscape of HIV prevention, care, and treatment.
This five-year funding opportunity announcement (FOA) reflects methods for assisting and supporting (1) Directly funded health departments in urban areas (i.e., Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago); (2) Other urban health departments in areas where HIV is concentrated in the United States; and (3) HIV prevention partners in the implementation of high impact comprehensive human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention programs in order to achieve maximal results in addressing the HIV burden throughout the United States and reducing new HIV infections. Services provided under this FOA will include assistance in the implementations of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS), High Impact Prevention (HIP), and other HIV prevention policy and programs, in accordance with core health department programs and HIV prevention in racial and ethnic minority communities to reduce HIV related health disparities. Additional TA topics to be included are: data to care; continuum of care; use of data to direct programs along the continuum of care; third-party billing; and engagement of clinical and non-clinical (including: community health care centers).
Services provided under this FOA will include assistance in the implementation of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS), High Impact Prevention (HIP), and other HIV prevention policy and programs, in accordance with core health department programs to include: public health systems, surveillance, behavioral and biomedical interventions, effective programs, health department cooperative agreement management, HIV testing (to include linkage, retention, and re-engagement in care and prevention services), and HIV prevention in racial and ethnic minority communities to reduce HIV related health disparities.
This FOA is in alignment with the NHAS; assistance will be provided to health departments on developing effective programs to meet the goals of NHAS, with regard to: Reducing HIV incidence; increasing access to care and optimizing health outcomes; and reducing HIV-related health disparities, by coordinating operational and programmatic activities to assist state health departments in the development of statewide HIV plans. This will include the provision of technical assistance on the development of needs assessments and identifying specific action steps that improve coordination among Federal, State, and local agencies.
Additionally, the FOA will support other efforts of the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) through Program Collaboration and Service Integration (PCSI) and Health Equity.
Technical assistance strategies such as web-based consultations, face-to-face meetings, videoconferences or teleconferences, mentoring, and peer-to-peer assistance will be utilized to address constituents’ needs with this FOA.
