Integrating the National HIV Curriculum e-Learning Platform into Health Care Provider Professional Education

Funding Agency:
Health Resources and Services Administration

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), HIV/AIDS Bureau is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2018 to integrate the National HIV Curriculum e-Learning Platform (the “NHC”) into the education and training curricula of health professions programs with an emphasis on medical, nursing, and pharmacy programs, including graduate education/residency programs. The effort is designed to address national shortages in the HIV clinical workforce. Organizations, including associations in collaboration with health professions programs, and also including predominantly minority-serving institutions, will work to incorporate the NHC into their curricula to help educate and train clinicians on the delivery of HIV care.

The FY 2018 President’s Budget does not request funding for this program. This notice is a contingency action taken to ensure that, should funds become available for this purpose, applications can be processed, and funds awarded in a timely manner. Applicants should note that this program may be canceled prior to award recommendations.

NOTE: Multiple applications from an organization are not allowable.
