Last week, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) released a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for Ending the HIV Epidemic - Primary Care HIV Prevention (PCHP; HRSA-20-091). The funding will support the Health Center Program in expanding HIV prevention services that decrease the risk of HIV transmission, focusing on supporting access to and use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). HRSA will invest approximately $50 million in HRSA-funded health centers located in geographic locations identified by Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America.
The funding opportunity also emphasizes that HRSA-funded health centers partner with:
1) Health departments,
2) Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program-funded organizations, and
3) Community and faith-based organizations.
Partnership activities include identifying at-risk individuals, testing for HIV, and linking patients to care.
The deadline for applications is December 16.
