Description: The Award Ceiling for Year 1 is 0 (none). CDC anticipates an Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding amount of $250,000,000 for Year 1, subject to the availability of funds. South Africa (SA) is home to both the largest HIV burden and the largest HIV treatment program in the world. It is also a country with high rates of TB, HIV/TB, and multi-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB). Though the South African Government (SAG) has made significant headway improving the availability of HIV and TB services over the past 20 years, significant challenges remain in meeting and sustaining targets for epidemic control and ensuring all persons residing in SA are able to access quality services. The goal of this NOFO is to identify partners to support the SAG in providing quality HIV and TB treatment services and targeted prevention services to persons living with or at risk for HIV and/or TB. Key interventions will be those that directly impact the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) 95-95-95 cascade for people living with HIV (PLHIV) and support achievement of the targets for TB elimination described in the World Health Organization (WHO) End TB Strategy. Additional health system strengthening activities will be included to enable the government to provide better HIV/TB services or support the process of transitioning key HIV/TB response activities to the SA National Department of Health (NDOH). Recipients of this NOFO will be expected to work in geographies where CDC currently supports HIV/TB care and treatment services with the flexibility of changing to other districts based on future PEPFAR country operational plan (COP) negotiations and decisions.
