Secretarys Minority AIDS Initiative Funding to Increase HIV Prevention and Care Service Delivery among Health Centers Serving High HIV Prevalence Jurisdictions
Grant Amount: Approximate Total Project Period Funding: $7,800,000; Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding: $2,600,000.
The purpose of this FOA is to support efforts to improve collaboration among state health departments and health centers to expand the provision of HIV prevention and care services within communities most impacted by HIV, especially racial/ethnic minorities, and to better serve PLWH. State health departments receiving funding under this FOA will participate in a project to develop and implement effective, replicable program models for collaboration between health departments and health centers, thereby enhancing both health department and health center capacity to deliver HIV prevention and care services to communities most impacted by HIV, including racial and ethnic minority populations who bear the greatest burden of the HIV epidemic. By the end of the three-year project, the partnerships (i.e., state health department grantees and participating health centers) should be able to demonstrate enhanced capacity to provide HIV services and to reach greater numbers of people with these services in communities most impacted by HIV, sustainable programmatic practice, and improved HIV-related patient outcomes (e.g., increased HIV testing rates and increased number of patients with undetectable viral load). Using additional federal funds allocated through SMAIF, HRSA/BPHC will invite eligible health centers identified as formal partners in the state health department’s application under this FOA to apply for supplemental funding to increase their capacity to provide HIV services within their primary care program. Health centers will be expected to provide routine HIV testing, basic HIV care and treatment, and case management and care coordination for PLWH. Health centers must collaborate with HIV specialty care providers to ensure that complex HIV care and treatment are available to patients directly or through formal referral. For purposes of this program, basic HIV care and treatment includes management of stable HIV-positive patients who are antiretroviral therapy (ART) naïve or on 1st line ART therapy, management of common complaints, and referrals for more complex HIV care. Complex HIV care and treatment includes management of HIV-positive patients on 2nd line, 3rd line or salvage therapy; management of persons with opportunistic infections or advanced HIV disease; and those in need of services for Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission (PMTCT). Health centers also must participate in HIV TAC activities described above. The HIV TAC will be led by an independent contractor funded by HRSA/BPHC through a competitive process.
