Funding Agency:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

This is a Forecasted Opportunity.

The Award Ceiling for Year 1 is 0 (none). CDC anticipates an Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding amount of $5,000,000 for Year 1, subject to the availability of funds. Uganda has a population of 42.8 million with a high burden of HIV estimated at 1,385,653, based on Spectrum estimates and recent Uganda Population HIV Impact Assessment (UPHIA) data. The national prevalence is 6.2%; 7.6% and 4.7% among females and males, respectively. The country has a generalized HIV/AIDS epidemic, and is working to attain epidemic control by 2020 and sustain gains well beyond. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs), including the private not-for-profit (PNFP) sector and faith-based organizations (FBOs), are key players in provision of comprehensive HIV services in Uganda. They have been important stakeholders in the HIV response even before the commencement of PEPFAR, and are key to the PEPFAR Uganda program and its sustainability strategy. This NOFO aims to engage and build technical, financial, and organizational capacity of faith-based leadership, communities, and facilities to address identified gaps in the HIV and TB service delivery. The recipient(s) will work with line Ministries and U.S. Government (USG) recipients to set up systems to support and provide technical assistance to selected high-volume faith-based service delivery facilities, work with communities, and implement continuous quality improvement (CQI) and innovative interventions to address other priority activities highlighted in this NOFO.
