Description: The Award Ceiling for Year 1 is 0 (none). CDC anticipates an Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding amount of $2,000,000 for Year 1, subject to the availability of funds.Ensuring human rights and leaving no one behind are among PEPFAR’s key priorities. In Uganda, key populations (KP) including, female sex workers (FSW), men who have sex with men (MSM), people who inject drugs (PWID), transgender, and prison populations, collectively contribute to more than 7% of the new HIV infections. However, interventions and programs targeting KP remain suboptimal. Supporting Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) who provide KP targeted services can accelerate HIV prevention, HIV case identification, antiretroviral therapy (ART) initiation, adherence, and viral load suppression among KP in Uganda. The activities outlined in this NOFO support increasing the capacity of CSOs to effectively collaborate with CDC-funded Implementing Partners (IPs), Ministry of Health (MOH) and other relevant government ministries to promote provision of comprehensive HIV/AIDS services to KP while improving referral pathways with community based partners. Building on lessons learned from the PEPFAR-funded Local Capacity Initiative (LCI) and the Key Population Investment Fund (KPIF) activities, these activities will improve access to comprehensive services for KP and legal, policy, and structural barriers that impede access to services will be reduced. Recipient(s) will collaborate with relevant PEPFAR agencies, The Global Fund to Fight TB HIV and Malaria (GF), MOH, CDC IPs, and other stakeholders to spearhead effective KP CSOs engagement.
