Description: The purpose of this program is to support communities in reducing new human human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections and relevant co-morbidities, specifically sexually transmitted infections (STI) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections, improve HIV-, STI- and HCV-related health outcomes, and to reduce HIV-, STI- and HCV-related health disparities among American Indian / Alaska Native (AI/AN) people. This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding for the Ending the HIV/HCV Epidemics in Indian Country (ETHIC) program for AI/AN Tribes and Urban Indian Communities as administered by IHS. In two separate but related parts, this initiative aims to implement effective and innovative strategies, interventions, approaches, and services to reduce new HIV and HCV infections among AI/AN in the U.S. This initiative’s overarching goals are to: (1) reduce new HIV infections in the U.S. to less than 3,000 per year by 2030; and (2) achieve a 90% reduction in new HCV infections and a 65% reduction in mortality, compared to a 2015 baseline.
