Funding

USAID/Uganda Comprehensive HIV/AIDS and Health Services at the Workplace Activity

Description
Grant Amount: The total estimated budget for this RFA is $15 million dollars, subject to the availability of funds.

USAID/Uganda anticipates awarding a new, $15 million, five-year Cooperative Agreement to support delivery of comprehensive HIV/AIDS and health services at the workplace. This activity’s target population is the Uganda Police Force, private guards from security companies with a national coverage, Uganda Wild Life Authority Staff including game rangers and park wardens, other national park staff, staff in selected hotels under Uganda Hotel Owners Association, their families and surrounding communities. The activity will also target selected hotels in high prevalence regions of the country under the guidance of Uganda Hotel Owners Association. This activity will serve as USAID/Uganda’s flagship workplace
HIV/AIDS program. It will build upon the successes and lessons learnt from the Supporting Public Sector Workplaces to Expand Actions and Responses against HIV/AIDS (SPEAR) activity, which ends in June 2014. The activity is purposed to reduce the incidence of HIV and other communicable diseases and improve the quality of care of those infected/affected through increased access to and use of comprehensive HIV/AIDS and other health services. This is envisaged to ultimately lead to improved health status among the target population.

The program goal will be achieved through tangible and measurable achievement of the
following outcomes:

IR: 1: Increased availability and access to comprehensive HIV/ AIDS and health services.
IR: 2: Improved quality of HIV/AIDS and health services.
IR: 3: Increased uptake and utilization of HIV/AIDS and health services.
