Description: The Award Ceiling for Year 1 is 0 (none). CDC anticipates an Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding amount of $16,000,000 for Year 1, subject to the availability of funds. Namibia achieved 94-96-95 of the 95-95-95 goals by the end of 2018. This NOFO will strengthen the Namibian HIV program to achieve sustained epidemic control. Namibia has a shortage of qualified health workers and health system managers, posing a major challenge for attainment of sustainable epidemic control. This NOFO provides technical and service delivery assistance to the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MoHSS) and other Namibian public health institutions to increase the capacity for a locally-led response to achieve and sustain HIV epidemic control. This will be achieved by providing technical support and capacity building for scaling up targeted case finding strategies (index testing, refined provider-initiated testing, recency testing); improving linkage and same-day antiretroviral therapy (ART) initiation among newly diagnosed clients; expanding services for retention, adherence to ART, and viral load (VL) suppression (community adherence groups/ART, multi-month scripting, patient tracing, optimizing antiretroviral medicine (ARV) regimens); preventing new infections through targeted outreach and medical interventions for those most at risk; expanding Tuberculosis (TB) preventive therapy (TPT) and expanding TB diagnostics and treatment; providing cervical cancer screening (CCS), treatment, and referral for women living with HIV (WLHIV); increasing indigenous partner capacity and expertise; and providing systems investments to achieve sustained epidemic control.
