Implementation of Programs for the Prevention, Care and Treatment of HIV/AIDS in the Republic of Cote d'Ivoire under the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)
This notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) will build on previous PEPFAR support under the HHS/CDC HIV treatment program to ensure continuity of comprehensive HIV/AIDS services to an existing pool of clients receiving HIV/AIDS care, support, and/or treatment. The program will also continue expanding access to HIV/AIDS services while enhancing the technical capacity of national structures to ensure sustainable service delivery within the health sector in Côte d’Ivoire. Specifically, it serves to increase capacity and sustainability of the response toward controlling the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Côte d’Ivoire by initially providing support for HIV service delivery aligning with PEPFAR geographic and programmatic pivots and ultimately providing technical assistance to indigenous Ivorian organizations and the national Ministry of Health and Public Hygiene (MSHP) to sustain and expand comprehensive HIV prevention, care, and antiretroviral therapy (ART) programs. Successful recipients will combine a facility and community-based strategy to support HIV/AIDS services. At the end of the 5-year project period, the recipients should be able to collect and evaluate program data that demonstrate improved quality of HIV prevention, care, and treatment services in Côte d’Ivoire and to transition activities to MSHP and/or local organizations to sustain a basic HIV service package.
