I. Funding Opportunity Description

Start Authority

Authority: Public Health Service Act, Section 301(a), [42 U.S.C. 241(a)], as amended.

End Authority

Background: Partnership for Health [1] (PfH) is a brief counseling program, delivered by medical providers, for men and women living with HIV/AIDS. The program is designed to improve patient-provider communication about disclosure of HIV serostatus and HIV prevention. PfH is based on a social cognitive model that uses message framing, repetition, and reinforcement to increase the patient's knowledge, skills, and motivations to engage in behaviors that reduce risk for HIV transmission. The AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETCs) have diffused PfH to the 12 new CDC-funded PA #04064 agencies. This project will expand the diffusion of PfH to 35-40 more clinics, via intervention training and technical assistance.

Purpose: The purpose of the program is to diffuse the PfH intervention to health care professionals, and other public or private medical facilities, that provide services to HIV-positive persons through national training and technical assistance for planning, implementation, and evaluation of PfH. Partnership for Health is an evidence-based HIV prevention intervention designed to integrate HIV prevention into medical services for persons living with HIV/AIDS. This program addresses the Healthy People 2010 focus area of HIV infection. It also addresses Strategy 3 of the Advancing HIV Prevention initiative: Prevent new infections by working with persons diagnosed with HIV and with their partners.

This project supports the following Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP) Strategic Plan priorities:

Goal 1, Objective 1: Among persons living with HIV, increase the proportion who consistently engage in behaviors that reduce risk for HIV transmission or acquisition.

Goal 4, Objective 2: Increase the number of evidence-based interventions and the proportion of prevention providers funded by CDC who successfully provide demonstrably effective HIV prevention interventions.

Measurable outcomes of the program will align with the following performance goal for the National Center for HIV, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHSTP):

Goal 1. Decrease the number of persons at high risk for acquiring or transmitting HIV infection.

This announcement is only for nonresearch activities supported by CDC/ATSDR. If research is proposed, the application will not be reviewed. For the definition of research, please see the CDC Web site at the following Internet address: http://www.cdc.gov/​od/​ads/​opspoll1.htm.

Activities: Awards activities for this program are as follows:

  • In cooperation with CDC and other grantees funded under this announcement, the grantee will develop and implement a marketing plan to promote the diffusion of the PfH intervention to health care and other public or private medical facilities providing services to HIV-positive persons within their public health designated area.
  • The grantee will identify and contact at least two health care and other public or private medical facilities that provide services to HIV-positive persons and that are interested in implementing PfH. This information will be shared with CDC and other grantees funded under this announcement to ensure adequate coverage of PfH in the United States and its territories.
  • In accordance with PfH trainer curriculum and related intervention materials, the grantee will plan, schedule, and conduct PfH training sessions for health care and other public or private medical facilities providing services to HIV-positive persons. The number of agencies trained will range from two to eight depending on regional clinic demand and epidemiologic need. Each PfH training session will include: (1) A 45-minute orientation program on site; (2) a 41/2-hour training program on site; and (3) a 2-hour booster program on site. The grantee will work in partnership with CDC and other grantees under this program announcement to establish a national training calendar for PfH.
  • The grantee will provide two trainers, who have completed the PfH training-of-trainers conducted by the University of Southern California, to conduct each of the three components of the PfH training and to provide technical assistance.
  • The grantee will provide technical assistance to trained agencies to support planning, implementation, and evaluation of PfH during the program year. Technical assistance will be provided by telephone, e-mail, or face-to-face. The grantee will coordinate this technical assistance with CDC, which may include using a CDC Web-based tracking system.
  • The grantee, along with CDC and other grantees funded under this announcement, will develop and implement a quality assurance plan for the training delivery and technical assistance.
  • The grantee will obtain a PfH intervention package and related materials (e.g., starter kit, technical assistance guide, sample budget) for training participants from the PfH researcher, Jean Richardson, at the Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Department of Preventive Medicine and Institute for Prevention Research, 1441 Eastlake Avenue, Suite 3409, Los Angeles, CA 90089-9175. Phone: 323-865-0343. E-mail: jeanr@usc.edu.
  • The grantee will submit the list of agencies to be trained and schedule of training sessions to the CDC Project Officer and other grantees funded under this program announcement.
  • The grantee will submit an interim report summarizing the activities and deliverables for the first half of the project period, including training provided and scheduled, dates of training, attendance at training sessions, a narrative description of the response of the organization and problems/challenges encountered, lessons learned, recruitment efforts for PfH training, technical assistance provided, and other activities.
  • The grantee will submit a final project report summarizing the activities and deliverables for the project period, including training completed, lessons learned, challenges, recruitment efforts for PfH training, technical assistance provided, and other activities.

In a cooperative agreement, CDC staff members are substantially involved in the program activities, above and beyond routine grant monitoring.

CDC activities for this program are as follows: Start Printed Page 40705

  • Provide technical assistance in the general operation of this HIV prevention project, including but not limited to detailed advice on steps to accomplish the grantee activities.
  • Consult on the choice of agencies selected for PfH training, by suggesting selection criteria, assisting in identifying potential agencies in the event that a grantee has difficulty, and approving the final choices.
  • Monitor and evaluate progress and deliverables of this project through frequent telephone contact; observation of PfH training sessions; and review of implementation plans, interim and final progress reports, quality assurance plans, marketing plans, and training schedules.
  • Conduct monthly calls with individual grantees and monthly conference calls with all grantees funded to provide PfH training to encourage exchange of information and technology transfer among grantees.
  • Make recommendations aimed at solving problems and improving the quality and timeliness of grantee activities.
