Supporting Implementation of Comprehensive HIV Prevention, Care and Treatment Programs in Bomu Hospital Affiliated Sites, Coptic Hospitals, and Faith-Based Sites in the Eastern Slums of Nairobi, Kenya under the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) will support expansion of comprehensive HIV prevention, care and treatment programs in: faith-based sites in the Eastern slums of Nairobi (Babadogo, Dandora, Donholm, Huruma, Kariobangi, Kayole, Mathare, Njiru, Ruai, Shaurimoyo, Soweto, St. Alice, St. Veronica, and St. Vincent); Coptic Hospitals (Hope Center in Ngong Road, and Industrial Area in Nairobi; and Maseno in Kisumu); and Bomu Hospital and affiliated sites (Bomu Hospital, Bomu Medical Centres in Likoni and Mariakani in Mombasa, Kinondo in Kwale and Timboni Community Dispensary in Kilifi), Kenya. These programs include the provision of facility-based services with strong community linkages to ensure a continuum of prevention, care, and treatment services for HIV-infected children, adults, pregnant women, and orphans and vulnerable children (OVC). As applicable, Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) and priority population services will be supported or referred and linked to services. It is anticipated that the awardee(s) will expand existing HIV prevention, care, and treatment activities in line with the PEPFAR 3.0 and Kenya AIDS Strategic Framework (KASF) goals of achieving epidemic control through identification of 90% of all people living with HIV (PLHIV); provision of antiretroviral therapy (ART) to 90% of PLHIV identified; and support to ensure 90% of PLHIV on ART are virally suppressed, thus contributing to a reduction in HIV incidence, morbidity, and mortality in Kenya.
