Grant Amount: Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding: $77,120,323; Approximate Total Project Period Funding: $385,601,610. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces the availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 funds to implement funding opportunity announcement (FOA) CDC-RFA-PS15-1501 Tuberculosis (TB) Elimination and Laboratory Cooperative Agreement (CoAg). TB CoAg funds support TB Prevention and Control (P&C) activities, TB programs’ Human Resources Development (HRD) activities, and Public Health Laboratory Strengthening activities according to formulas that reflect TB
Grant Amount: Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding: approximately $4,000,000; Approximate Total Project Period Funding: approximately $15,000,000. CDC seeks to support state and local public health efforts to increase the prevention effectiveness of public health interventions. Timely models and economic analyses support both of these goals.
The National HIV Surveillance System (NHSS) is the mechanism through which the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP), HIV Incidence and Case Surveillance Branch (HICSB) monitors trends in HIV infection diagnoses in the United States. Data collected on reported HIV cases are also used to estimate the prevalence and incidence of HIV infections, progression of disease after diagnosis, and receipt of care (based on laboratory tests after diagnosis).
This monograph provides a comprehensive approach to addressing the injection drug user's (IDUs) role in the HIV epidemic and recommends strategies for community groups, agencies, and providers to help reduce the IDU's sexual and drug-use risks of HIV transmission.
This report provides updated data on the incidence and prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the United States resulting from anonymous unlinked surveys conducted by health clinics in selected metropolitan areas. Included in this report are summaries of data from January 1993 through December 1977 from unlinked prevalence surveys conducted in selected STD clinics, drug treatment centers (DTCs), and adolescent medicine clinics, as well as data from HIV screening programs for entrants in the Job Corps, military service, and first-time blood donors.
This MMWR provides revised guidelines for HIV counseling, testing, and referral (CTR) and revised recommendations for HIV screening of pregnant women. It encourages the availability of anonymous and confidential HIV testing and informed, voluntary, and consented HIV testing; access to testing and effective provision of test results; and using a prevention counseling approach aimed at personal risk reduction for HIV-infected persons and persons at increased risk for HIV infection.
This report lists and describes successful community-based-organizations and strategies recognized by the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) that provide HIV/AIDS prevention education and outreach to hard-to-reach and vulnerable populations. It outlines programs in Boston, Cedar Rapids, Chicago, Durham, Houston, Inglewood, Newport News, San Francisco, Seattle, Trenton, Tulsa, and Virginia Beach.
This report presents the results of a study by Funders Concerned About AIDS (FCAA) called the Funder Remobilization Project (FRP), which was designed to develop a clearer understanding of the current state of human HIV/AIDS philanthropy in order to motivate and activate an ongoing vigorous philanthropic response. The report discusses the purpose of the study, research methods, the environment for HIV/AIDS philanthropy in the 21st century, FRP findings including challenges and opportunities in moving forward in HIV/AIDS philanthropy, and a framework for ongoing philanthropic leadership.
This information sheet discusses the benefits and challenges surrounding physician prescription of sterile syringes for injection drug users (IDUs). The benefits include substantially reducing IDUs' risk of acquiring or transmitting the HIV, hepatitis B and C, and other blood-borne infections. The challenges include legal and attitudinal issues. It examines the results of a research study in Rhode Island examining the feasibility of physician prescription in a community care setting.
This report is a basic guide to proposal writing for staff of community-based organizations (CBOs) and health departments applying for HIV prevention funding. Many of the strategies are drawn from the experience of staff of the US Conference of Mayors' Health Programs. It reviews the basic elements and other key segments of a proposal, and provides tips on collaboration.
