Description: The Award Ceiling for Year 1 is 0 (none). CDC anticipates an Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding amount of $5,000,000 for Year 1, subject to the availability of funds. Malawi continues to have a shortage of highly skilled health care personnel to support national efforts to reach and sustain HIV epidemic control. This NOFO will provide highly skilled technical assistance to the Government of Malawi (GOM), in support of PEPFAR’s goals of achieving and maintaining epidemic control. Under this NOFO, Technical Advisors (TAs) will be recruited and seconded primarily to the Ministry of Health (MOH) as well as a few other key government and local institutions and paired with MOH staff. The TAs’ scope will transition to government counterparts over the life of the award. The TAs will support the national program to monitor HIV epidemic control, ensure HIV service quality, and respond to HIV outbreaks following the achievement of epidemic control; monitor the tuberculosis (TB) and multidrug-resistant-TB epidemic to achieve TB epidemic control; provide evidence-based guidance and technical input on guidelines, standard operating procedures, and innovations to the HIV/TB program to sustain epidemic control, share experiences, and introduce efficiencies to the program; and ensure HIV/TB commodity availability to maintain epidemic control. TAs seconded to the Public Health Institute of Malawi (PHIM) will support the training of health care workers in field epidemiology. In addition, this award will monitor other CDC/PEPFAR HRH investments at the site level to demonstrate and disseminate impact on improved HIV/TB services.
