This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) seeks opportunities to co-create, co-design, co-invest, and collaborate in the research, development, piloting, testing, and scaling of innovative, practical and cost-effective interventions to address Guatemala’s Development Challenges. Those Development Challenges may include opportunities to address the Regional HIV/AIDS Program managed in Guatemala.

Actual opportunities for funding and partnering to address specific research areas of interest will be issued as Addenda to this BAA. The terms of the BAA apply to each Addendum. Individual addenda may have specific requirements for evaluation criteria and administrative information, such as the requirements for expressions of interest, concept papers, and response deadlines.
