Grant Amount: $250,000 over two years ($125,000 per year for two years).
The goal of the Kaiser Permanente Community-based HIV Test and Treat Initiative (TTI) is to support agencies whose work is designed to establish communities as places where new HIV infections are rare and, when they do occur, every person, regardless of age, gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or socio-economic circumstance, will be aware of their status and have unfettered access to high quality, life-extending care, free from stigma and discrimination.
The initiative incorporates three main goals: (1) to prevent new HIV infections, to identify HIV positive patients sooner; (2) get them into high quality HIV care sooner and remain in such care; (3) to reduce disparities among minority populations disproportionately impacted by HIV disease (particularly the gay, African-American, and Latino communities).
The purpose of the TTI is to improve early identification of new HIV cases and to increase the HIV care acquisition and maintenance of newly diagnosed individuals in minority communities disproportionately affected by the HIV epidemic.
This initiative is being undertaken by Kaiser Permanente to affect HIV at a population level via community approaches to prevention, intervention and care. Awards will be made to community-based projects engaging in innovative programmatic approaches which focus on both of the following in combination:
(1) reducing New HIV Infections: Identification of HIV infection among recently infected adolescents and adults; (2) increasing HIV Care Utilization: Improved access to and utilization of HIV care, particularly among newly-diagnosed adolescents and adults.
