The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces the intent to fund fiscal year (FY) 2005 funds for a cooperative agreement program to provide high-quality clinical care to PLWHAs in the Livingstone District of Southern Province of the Republic of Zambia. The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 93.067.
B. Eligible Applicant
Assistance will be provided only to the Southern Province Health Office of the Republic of Zambia. No other applications are solicited. The current health system structure in Zambia consists of the MOH, which has the responsibility for policy guidance and strategic planning, and the Central Board of Health, which is responsible for the translation and implementation of government health policies. The country is administratively divided into nine Provinces and 72 districts. In the health sector, the Provincial Health Office provides technical support to the districts in the areas of management of service delivery, planning of health programs, priority setting and resource utilization. Within this framework the Southern Province Health Office is the only entity in Zambia qualified to collaborate with HHS as part of the Emergency Plan in Livingstone because it has the legal authority, expertise, and capacity to perform the key public health activities that are part of this cooperative agreement.
Approximately $200,000 is available in FY 2005 to fund this award September 15, 2005 and will be made for a 12-month budget period within a project period of up to five years. Funding estimates may change.
