Description: The Award Ceiling for Year 1 is 0 (none). CDC anticipates an Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding amount of $2,500,000 for Year 1, subject to the availability of funds. Namibia is approaching HIV epidemic control and is estimated to have achieved 94-96-95 at the end of 2018. This means that 94% of people living with HIV (PLHIV) know their status as HIV positive. Among those who know their positive status, 96% are actively on anti-retroviral treatment (ART), and among those on ART, 95% are virally suppressed. This notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) is designed to strengthen the Namibian HIV program to achieve sustained epidemic control. This mechanism provides high quality technical assistance (TA) to strengthen health information systems (HIS); support surveys, surveillance, and routine program monitoring; and strengthen case-based surveillance (CBS) through strategies including improved interoperability of data systems and the establishment and implementation of unique patient identifiers in Namibia to facilitate data integration in strengthening public health programs for sustained epidemic control. The strategy is grounded in setting the stage for long-term transition to full Namibia domestic leadership and, in the short term, continuing to strengthen the broader health system interventions. The result of this work will be a stronger and more flexible, data-driven response that will allow Namibia to reach epidemic control in a sustainable manner.
