The NIH, in collaboration with the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) is soliciting applications for implementation science research that will inform delivery and scale-up of efficacious interventions to improve HIV prevention, care, and treatment in Africa.The intent of this FOA is to solicit implementation science research projects that will have a high impact on controlling the HIV epidemic and provide evidence for best programmatic practices in PEPFAR programs.
The purpose of these activities is to support the goals of the HHS Action Plan for the Prevention, Care, and Treatment of Viral Hepatitis, 2014-2016 by ensuring Hep B-infected pregnant women are identified so that their infants can receive timely post-exposure prophylaxis, improvements in post-vaccination serologic testing to improve efficiencies, and data collection to assess infant outcomes.
The purpose of this FOA is to provide partial support for specific non-Federal conferences focusing on HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STDs, TB, and/or adolescent and school health. By the end of the project, conference attendees are expected to have increased access to the latest evidence based information related to the focus areas, increased knowledge, and improved professional partnerships.
The purpose of this FOA is to support studies characterizing the genetic, epigenetic, and/or immunological correlates of protection against tuberculosis infection in highly-exposed but resistant individuals, and the interaction of these correlates with HIV infection.
The goal of the project is to strengthen the capacity of the Ministry of Health and Population of Haiti (referred to as MSPP) to lead, coordinate, enhance, regulate, and oversee the HIV/AIDS program and other key health programs consistent with the PEPFAR and Global Health Initiative (GHI) Principles.
The purpose of this research opportunity is to rigorously evaluate innovative interventions designed for young men aged 15-24 years old to reduce their risk of fathering a teen pregnancy that can be feasibly implemented in target settings (e.g., clinics, schools, community settings, youth-serving organizations, correctional settings).
The purpose of this funding opportunity is to develop and test a mobile messaging (e.g., texting, App) HIV prevention intervention for sexually-active (i.e., had sex with a man in the prior 12 months) gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM).
The grantee will conduct CDC's Positive Health Check Evaluation Trial with English-speaking people living with HIV from 3-4 diverse HIV primary care clinics in the U.S. to test if this web-based intervention improves clinical outcomes. The grantee will enroll a min. of 2,320 eligible participants (1,160 per study arm) in the study trial, with a min. of 580 to a max. of 1,160 enrolled per clinic.
Grant Amounts: Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding - $350,000.00. The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to strengthen HIV strategic information (SI) in Senegal through design and implementation of a national HIV case reporting system and other surveillance activities in support of the national Strategic Information (SI) program.
Grant Amount: NIDCR intends to commit $3.5 million in FY2015, including $1.5 million in HIV/AIDS-related research and $2 million in non-HIV/AIDS-related research, to fund a total of 6-10 new awards. In spite of significant therapeutic accomplishments after 30 years of research on HIV and the global AIDS epidemic, abolishing HIV and its oral infectious comorbidities has yet to be achieved. For this reason, the goal of this FOA is to support novel basic and translational research projects that focus on the biology of residual oral reservoirs for HIV and opportunistic oral pathogens.
