Achieving and Maintaining Epidemic Control through Comprehensive HIV/AIDS Prevention, Care and Treatment Services in the Haut Katanga Region of the Democratic Republic of Congo under the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)

The goal of this NOFO is to increase population access to comprehensive HIV/AIDS services in order to decrease HIV/AIDS associated morbidity and mortality. The NOFO aims to contribute towards successful epidemic control in the Haut Katanga Region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), due to the declaration of priority from Ministry of Health (MOH) and PEPFAR in terms of the burden of disease. The NOFO has potential for expansion based on future geographic prioritization.

Novel Therapeutics Directed to Intracellular HIV Targets (R21 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support the development of novel therapeutics which are directed to intracellular HIV targets. During the HIV life cycle multiple viral associated proteins are expressed in the infected cell. All are critical to support assembly, release and maturation of the virus. Considering each protein has a defined role in the life cycle, therapeutically targeting one or more may be an effective strategy to obtain potent antiviral activity.
