NIH/PEPFAR Collaboration for Implementation Science (Admin Supp)

Grant Amount: The Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator, through NIH, intends to commit a total of $7 million in FY14 to fund approximately 14-20 awards.

The intent of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage implementation science research of relevance to PEPFAR programs that will focus on the multiple challenges being encountered by many programs in resource-limited countries when they attempt to deploy effective prevention, treatment, and integrated interventions against HIV/AIDS. Studies should reflect the needs and priorities of the countries or regions in which they are to be conducted, but also produce results that are quantifiable and applicable to diverse circumstances and geographic areas. Another objective is to incorporate capacity building and/or local investigators in the proposed work.

Projects will be awarded that apply accepted implementation science methodology while building in-country research capacity and that focus on one or more of the specific areas of research detailed in this notice. Current grantees are encouraged to develop partnerships with local researchers and researchers from other disciplines that can best address the research question. Collaborations are encouraged and may combine expertise in anthropology, business and public administration, clinical decision-making, data management, economics, epidemiology and statistical methods, individual and systems-level behavioral change, information science, learning theory, engineering, marketing and/or organizational and management theory. Due to the limited time frame, secondary analyses of existing data sets or pilot projects of innovative approaches are also encouraged.

The specific research areas below were developed through discussions with PEPFAR field staff, United States Government agency headquarters staff involved in PEPFAR programming, the PEPFAR Scientific Advisory Board, the NIH and the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC).

I. Implementation Science for Treatment Programs;
II. Metrics for Quality of Care;
III. Identification/Diagnosis and/or Prevention of Tuberculosis (TB) Disease;
IV. Linkage of non-HIV services with HIV care;
V. Focus on Key Affected Populations (KAP) (FY 2014 PEPFAR Technical Considerations note that “Key Populations are persons who are affected by punitive laws, regulations and policies, stigmatized and marginalized, and disproportionately affected by HIV. This includes men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender persons [TG], people who inject drugs [PWID], and sex workers [SWs]);
VI. Focus on Adolescents;
VII. Training and Health Systems;
VIII. Mother-to-Child Transmission and Maternal Health.

The proposed research must fall within the scope of work of the parent grant and, once awarded, will be managed according to the rules and regulations of the NIH institute through which the project is funded. The application may not include initiation of a new research site for this study.
