Description: The purpose of this Indian Health Service (IHS) competitive supplement is to support communities in reducing new HIV infections and relevant co-morbidities, specifically Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) and Viral Hepatitis C (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. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Minority HIV/AIDS Fund (MHAF) is funding IHS grantees to meet the four strategies of Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America initiative (EHE) – diagnose, treat, protect, and respond. Our goal is ambitious and the pathway is clear – employ strategic practices in Indian Country to: (1) diagnose all people with HIV as early as possible after infection; (2) treat the infection rapidly and effectively to achieve sustained viral suppression; (3) respond rapidly to detect and respond to growing (HIV) clusters and prevent new HIV infections, and; (4) establish local teams committed to the success of the initiative in each jurisdiction. To reach the EHE goal of 75% reduction in new HIV infections in 5 years and at least 90% reduction in 10 years, the IHS, through an intra-Departmental Delegation of Authority (IDDA) to obligate specific amounts from MHAF, is offering this funding opportunity to the Tribal Epidemiology Centers (TECs) to support activities across Indian Country within the Community Planning Domain.
