Description: The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to implement a comprehensive HIV surveillance and prevention program to prevent new HIV infections and achieve viral suppression among persons living with HIV. In particular, the FOA promotes and supports improving health outcomes for persons living with HIV through achieving and sustaining viral suppression, and reducing health-related disparities by using quality, timely, and complete surveillance and program data to guide HIV prevention efforts. These goals are in accordance with the national prevention goals, HIV Care Continuum, and CDC’s High-Impact HIV Prevention (HIP) approach. The integration of these programs allows each jurisdiction to operate in unison and maximize the impact of federal HIV prevention funding. An integrated FOA strengthens implementation of HIP by further allowing health departments to align resources to better match the geographic burden of HIV infections within their jurisdictions and improve data collection and use for public health action. The FOA priorities are to increase individual knowledge of HIV status, prevent new infections among HIV-negative persons, reduce transmission from persons living with HIV, and strengthen interventional surveillance to enhance response capacity and intensive data-to-care activities to support sustained viral suppression. Priority activities include (but are not limited to) HIV testing; linkage to, re-engagement in, and retention in care and support achieving viral suppression; pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) related activities; community-level HIV prevention activities; HIV transmission cluster investigations and outbreak response efforts.
