Funding

Expansion of HIV/AIDS Care and prevention among Church Related Hospitals and clinics in the Republic of Zimbabwe under the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)

Description
Grant Amount: Approximate Current Fiscal Year Funding: $6,370,000; Approximate Total Project Period Funding: $39,710,000.

The goal and objectives of the program in Zimbabwe is to prevent HIV morbidity and mortality through prevention, care and treatment of HIV/AIDS. Specific objectives of this program are:

1. By the end of the project period, complete voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) on 157,000 uncircumcised males 15-49 years of age and 80% of newborn males seen in faith-based organization (FBO) member newborn delivery sites
2. By the end of the project period, 16,000 newly identified PLHIV will be reached with a minimum package of prevention with positives (PwP) interventions as per PEPFAR and Ministry of Health and Child Welfare (MOHCW) Zimbabwe minimum standards.
3. By the end of the project period, 100 % of 69 FBO member sites approved as opportunistic infections/ antiretroviral therapy (OI/ART) units will provide testing and counseling (TC), PMTCT and TB/HIV services as part of the integrated package of HIV/AIDS continuum of care. This should be in line with national standards.
4. By the end of Year Three, increase the number of FBO member sites from 45 to 69, meeting the MOHCW minimum requirements for an OI/ART unit.
5. By the end of the project period, increase the number of testing sites from 45 to 69 with on-site laboratories to perform clinical laboratory tests.
6. By the end of the project period, increase the number of newly enrolled adults and children with advanced HIV infection who are started on ART at approved OI/ART units by 28,500.
7. In alignment with the needs and strategic plan of the MOHCW, the partner will provide in-service training for a minimum of 750 of its health care and community outreach workers during the project period.

The purpose of this FOA is to improve and expand the HIV/AIDS prevention and care capacity and activities in the GoZ through cooperation among the PEPFAR/CDC and a network of faith based health facilities in all 10 provinces of the country. FBOs complement the GoZ national health coverage through a nationwide network of health care facilities targeted to rural, hard to reach areas. Cooperative efforts must continue to make significant improvements in the management of HIV prevention programs, expansion of prevention, care and treatment of HIV and related conditions (e.g. TB), prevention services for VMMC, and provision of enhanced care (e.g. testing, PMTCT, TB/HIV and PwP as part of the HIV continuum of care) for persons who are infected with HIV/AIDS and their families.
