In sub-Saharan Africa, TB is the leading killer of persons living with HIV (PLHIV), and Zimbabwe is one of 22 countries WHO designated as high-burden for TB incidence. Infection prevention and control (IPC), and particularly TB infection control (TBIC) activities are critical to protect patients and health care workers (HCW) from healthcare-associated transmission of airborne infectious diseases.
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) will support the implementation and expansion of comprehensive HIV prevention, care, and treatment activities in Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) and Mathari Mental Hospital (MMH) in Nairobi and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital (JOOTRH) in Kisumu. All three are National Teaching and Referral Hospitals (NT&RHs) and will serve as clinical centers of excellence (COEs) for clinical referral for complicated patients and provide on-site mentorship for health care workers (HCW); in particular for advanced HIV case management.
This project will support an evaluation of up to two locally-developed or adapted and potentially effective but insufficiently evaluated, interventions that are designed to deliver a combination of HIV prevention, HIV care and treatment, and other social and structural support services to transgender persons who have sex with men who are at risk for HIV infection or who are living with HIV.
The purpose of the project is to conduct activities involving effective and evidence-based approaches to providing comprehensive and integrated HIV/AIDS care and treatment services to adult and pediatric populations, to include provider initiated testing and counseling activities as well as Prevention of Mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV and elimination of pediatric HIV activities. The project intends to build and capitalize on the work done to date in Lesotho in these program areas since the inception of PEPFAR support in Lesotho.
The objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to solicit hypothesis-driven, multidisciplinary research to elucidate the complexities and developmental plasticity of B cells associated with the induction of potent, durable, adaptive immune responses against HIV-1.
The U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command’s (USAMRMC) mission is to provide solutions to medical problems of importance to the American Service member at home and abroad, as well as to the general public at large. The scope of this effort and the priorities attached to specific projects are influenced by changes in military and civilian medical science and technology, operational requirements, military threat assessments, and national defense strategies.
The primary purpose of the Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Early Innovation Program is to establish two independent intermediaries that will select, fund, and support a portfolio of innovators across the country to design, test, and refine interventions to advance adolescent health and prevent teen pregnancy.
The purpose of this funding announcement is to have a significant impact on reducing rates of teen pregnancy and existing disparities by replicating evidence-based Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) programs to scale in at least 3 settings in communities and with populations at greatest need.
The purpose of this funding announcement is to increase the number of evidence-based Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) interventions available by rigorously evaluating new or innovative approaches for preventing teen pregnancy and related risk behaviors.
The purpose of this FOA is (1) to support the dissemination of Act Against AIDS (AAA) campaign materials, messaging and other CDC resources that support HIV prevention and (2) to implement national engagement efforts focusing on HIV prevention and awareness.
