Description: The purpose of this FOA is to strengthen the prevention of HIV transmission by ensuring that services provided by National Blood Transfusion Services (NBTS) in selected countries meet global standards for quality and safety including behavioral screening; blood collection from regular voluntary non-remunerated low risk blood donors; quality blood processing and testing for transfusion transmissible infections; blood component production, appropriate clinical use of blood, and haemovigilance testing, and quality, and by increasing the capacity to ensure adequate referral and tracing of blood donors with HIV reactive results to HTC programs for prevention counseling, confirmatory testing, and treatment services. By strengthening safer vein-to-vein practices, and ensuring consistent follow-up and linkage to care and treatment services for HIV positive individuals, the proposed activities will help establish a quality-assured and safe blood supply, and contribute to the 90-90-90 targets.
