Supporting Local Indigenous Faith-Based Partners in Providing High Quality HIV Care, Prevention and Treatment Services and Improving Linkage and Retention in the Republic of Guyana under the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)

Funding Agency:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks to build on past accomplishments in Guyana under the guidance of the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) with funding from PEPFAR. The FOA aims to improve access to quality clinical services and contribute to an increase in coverage of antiretroviral therapy (ART). The long-term goal is an integrated care and treatment approach which improves health service delivery for people living with HIV (PLHIV) and increases access to services for key populations (KP) who seek care outside the public sector – namely transgendered (TG) persons, sex workers (SW) and men who have sex with men (MSM). It will also contribute to timely linkage to care and treatment services, retention on ART and ultimately viral suppression of patients on treatment. The accomplishment of these objectives will support the Country of Guyana’s  goal of achieving epidemic control through an integrated HIV/AIDS care model and will in turn facilitate the country’s HIV strategic goal of ‘Zero new infections, zero deaths and zero discrimination by 2020.'
