Achieving and Sustaining HIV/TB Epidemic Control in the Mpumalanga Province

The goal of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) “Achieving and Sustaining HIV Epidemic Control in the Mpumalanga Province” Activity (hereinafter referred to as the Activity) is to support long, healthy lives for the population of Mpumalanga Province by achieving and sustaining HIV/TB epidemic control. USAID aims to reach this goal by achieving the following strategic objectives: (1) Close the gaps towards eliminating HIV/AIDS as a public health threat through tailored approaches; and (2) Sustain health gains through strengthened, improved, and resilient health systems. The geographic focus is the three districts in the Mpumalanga Province: Nkangala, Ehlanzeni and Gert Sibande districts. However, geographic focus may shift in line with epidemiological changes and/or Government of South Africa (GoSA) and U.S. Government (USG) priorities. The period of performance is five years, and the total estimated amount to be awarded is US$190 million.

USAID strongly encourages effective, evidence-based approaches (with new “innovations”12 where appropriate to the context) that are tailored specifically to address the development challenges of eliminating HIV and TB as public health threats in the Mpumalanga Province. Effective and working partnerships with communities, community-based organizations (CBOs) and civil society organizations (CSOs) that will result in services reaching the people most in need is encouraged. Identifying and resolving health systems barriers will be key to promoting long-term sustainability of the results achieved under the Activity.
