Building Capacity for Human Resources for Health in HIV/AIDS in the Republic of Kenya under the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) will support the strengthening and sustainability of HIV/AIDS in-service training and mentorship of health care workers (HCW), as well as patient support programs through national and county systems, including the National HIV Clinical Support Center (NHCSC) and the National HIV Integrated Training Course (NHITC) in Kenya. The awardee(s) will also support updating of curricula and systems along the continuum of HCW capacity building, including pre-service training, internship, registration, licensing, continuing professional development (CPD), and in-service training in line with changing guidelines and new initiatives for HIV prevention, treatment, and care interventions, as well as promote innovative instructional platforms for training delivery. Expected outcomes include improved coverage and quality of HIV services (target of ensuring 90% of people living with HIV (PLHIV) know their status; 90% of people diagnosed with HIV infection receive antiretroviral therapy (ART); and 90% of people receiving HIV treatment are virally suppressed); increased accountability, transparency, sustainability, and efficiency in HCW training; increased highly skilled HCW who provide comprehensive HIV services adherent to guidelines; and improved patient treatment adherence, retention, and active participation in HIV care management. Provision of quality services will ultimately contribute to improved health outcomes among PLHIV in Kenya.
