The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced the competitive availability of fiscal year 2019 funds to implement a capacity building assistance (CBA) program to improve the performance of the nation’s HIV prevention workforce. PS 19-1904 Capacity Building Assistance for High Impact HIV Prevention Program Integration promotes and supports:
- reducing new HIV infections;
- increasing access to care and improving health outcomes for persons with HIV, including achieving and sustaining viral suppression;
- reducing HIV-related health disparities and health inequities; and,
- achieving a more coordinated national response to the HIV epidemic.
Strengthening the capacity of the nation’s HIV prevention workforce is a crucial step toward reaching the national goal of no new HIV infections. For more information on program components and important dates related to this funding opportunity—such as the first overview webinar scheduled for Thursday, September 20, 2018—visit the PS 19-1904 web page.
