Description: The purpose of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to support implementation research on combining HIV prevention modalities to add navigation for HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) at syringe service programs (SSPs) for people who inject drugs (PWID). The recipient should be an organization or institution that includes or partners with multiple and diverse SSPs. CDC is interested in increasing PrEP care through SSPs by incorporating more PrEP navigation and support into standard processes. The NOFO seeks effectiveness-implementation research on the acceptability and feasibility of a navigator-enhanced PWID PrEP service bundle at SSPs and optimizing it for initiation and retention in PrEP care among adult PWID. Applied research resulting from this funding is expected to strengthen combined HIV prevention for PWID and is aligned with the HIV National Strategic Plan (2021-2025) and the Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE) initiative “Prevent” Pillar.
