Strengthening Training, Evaluation, and Partnerships in the Prevention and Control of Vector-Borne Diseases

NOTE: This is a Forecasted Opportunity.

The purpose of this NOFO is to improve our nation’s capacity to address the growing health threat of vector-borne diseases by building the vector-borne disease prevention and control workforce and its capacity, improving adoption and evaluation of vector-borne disease prevention control programs, tools, and technologies, and facilitating partnerships between academic institutions and federal, local, state, territorial, tribal public health agencies and/or other interested parties.  The NOFO strategies are to: (1) TRAIN - Increase opportunities for students and professionals to receive training in vector-borne disease (VBD) prevention and control; this must include training university/college-based students and currently practicing vector-borne disease prevention and control professionals; (2) EVALUATE - Evaluate the impact and effectiveness (non-research) of existing or commercially available vector-borne disease prevention and control tools, technologies and programs; and (3) PARTNER - Build partnerships among relevant institutions and organizations in the vector-borne disease community to accomplish the activities proposed in Strategies 1 and 2. Activities must include collaborative partnerships with private partners, academic centers, or public health organizations at federal, state, tribal or local levels to develop and implement training and evaluation activities.
