Description: The Award Ceiling for Year 1 is 0 (none). CDC anticipates an Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding amount of $1,000,000 for Year 1, subject to the availability of funds.Thailand has a concentrated HIV epidemic with an estimated 440,000 people living with HIV (PLHIV) and 15,000 deaths in 2018. About 50% of new infections were driven by unprotected sex in men who have sex with men (MSM). Despite the national AIDS program efforts, HIV testing, treatment, and viral suppression coverage among MSM/transgender women (TG) lag behind the 95-95-95 targets and coverage of the HIV clinical cascade is lowest in Bangkok where the HIV epidemic is highest.The recipient(s) of this NOFO will provide direct support and technical assistance (TA) to public and other health facilities in priority provinces with service gaps to accelerate the coverage and quality of effective HIV prevention, treatment and care activities among key populations (KP) and PLHIV in Thailand. Key strategies include promoting active case finding using rapid recency and index testing, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), improving HIV service delivery (same-day antiretroviral treatment (ART) initiation, retention to care, viral load (VL) testing), promote multi-month scripting (MMS), tenofovir/lamivudine/dolutegravir (TLD) transition, TB preventive therapy (TPT), and improving data quality. The recipient(s) will coordinate with multiple partners to share Thailand and other regional TA and best practices through regional workshops, study tours, TA visits, and online platforms in related technical areas to accomplish the UNAIDS 95-95-95 goals in Thailand and regional countries.
