The United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS or Department), Office of Minority Health (OMH) located within the Office of the Secretary announces the anticipated availability of funds for Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 for HIV/AIDS Initiative for Minority Men (hereafter referred to as AIMM Initiative) under the authority of Section 1707 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. §300u-6).
The AIMM Initiative specifically addresses the unmet needs of young racial and ethnic minority men who have sex with men (MSM) between the ages of 20-29 and young minority males living with HIV/AIDS or at high risk for HIV infections. The AIMM Initiative will establish a comprehensive Integrated Center for Care and Supportive Services (ICCSS) that employs evidence-based disease management and preventive health program and supportive services to reduce the transmission of HIV; address gaps and fragmentation of HIV/AIDS treatment; reduce HIV/AIDS stigma and barriers to culturally and linguistically appropriate care; social determinants of health that impede treatment adherence; preventive opportunistic infections; and improve clinical outcomes of MSM and young minority males living with HIV or at high risk for HIV infections. The ICCSS must include the following partnerships: local community-based organizations or community-based agencies (CBO/CBA) that provide HIV/AIDS services to the targeted population; a substance abuse and mental health treatment program such as a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) funded community-based substance abuse treatment, behavioral treatment or recovery program; a community-based clinical organization such as a Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) funded health organization that provides comprehensive HIV/AIDS treatment, service coordination and case management; and social and support service organizations and/or programs that have extensive experience in serving the targeted population, community involvement, and expansive network of collaborative partners.
