Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Implementation Center for HIV Clinical Quality Improvement Department of Health and Human Services

This announcement solicits applications for the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Implementation Center for HIV Clinical Quality Improvement. The purpose of this program is to assist RWHAP recipients and subrecipients with implementing clinical quality improvement methodologies and concepts, as required by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009, to improve HIV health outcomes for people living with HIV (PLWH). The activities outlined align with the Clinical Quality Management Policy Clarification Notice 15-02 (CQM PCN 15-02), which clarifies RWHAP program expectations for clinical quality management (CQM) programs, inclusive of quality improvement, infrastructure, and performance measurement. Although infrastructure and performance measurement are key components of CQM, this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) cooperative agreement will focus on quality improvement and improving patient health outcomes. The cooperative agreement activities are priority areas for training and technical assistance (T/TA) which will require coordination with existing clinical quality improvement efforts.
