This announcement solicits applications for fiscal year (FY) 2013 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part C Early Intervention Services (EIS) Limited Competitive Service Areas (Brooklyn, NY, and Boston, MA). The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) announces this funding opportunity for competing Part C Early Intervention Services (EIS) to support outpatient HIV early intervention and primary care services. These services target low-income, medically underserved people living with HIV/AIDS.
The purpose of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Part C EIS Program is to provide HIV primary care in the outpatient setting. Applicants must propose to provide a comprehensive continuum of outpatient HIV primary care services in the targeted area including: (1) targeted HIV counseling, testing, and referral; (2) medical evaluation and clinical care; (3) other primary care services; and (4) referrals to other health services. Primary care for persons with HIV disease should start as early in the course of the infection as possible. However, entry into a Part C EIS program may take place at any point in the spectrum of the disease or the patient’s lifespan.
