National Population-based HIV Impact Assessment (PHIA) in Nigeria under the Presidents Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR): The goal and objectives of the program is to solicit comprehensive and cost-effective technical assistance, capacity building and program implementation expertise for PEPFAR and Global Fund-supported global health activities (with emphasis on but not limited to HIV/AIDS) in the five programmatic areas listed under the purpose section of this FOA. This announcement will also support Global Fund implementing partners in assessing HIV service delivery and will develop technical assistance plans and strategies. This FOA will not provide direct program implementation. Rather, it will provide technical assistance support to PEPFAR and Global Fund implementing partners engaged in program implementation and scale-up activities. This FOA will support HHS/CDC's efforts to provide high-quality, targeted technical assistance to ensure that the PEPFAR and Global Fund-supported countries have the capacity and necessary technical expertise to assume responsibility for service delivery and adequately respond to their HIV epidemics. While this announcement will address several of the overall program goals and objectives, it will primarily focus on five critical PEPFAR-supported technical areas. Applicants are expected to respond to one or more of the following program areas: Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV/AIDS (PMTCT); HIV Care and Treatment Clinical Services for adults and children; HIV Pediatric Care and Treatment (PEDs); Surveillance and Strategic Information (SI); and Laboratory

Additional Information on Eligibility
The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is the only implementing partner currently supporting the Government of Nigeria to establish all necessary systems and infrastructures required for conducting this national population-based HIV/AIDS survey. UMB emerged as the top ranked, successful applicant from a fully competitive, objective review process under the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) GH18-1813, with a first-year award ceiling of $20M. It was originally planned to conduct the survey over a three-year period with data collection occurring in the first two years; hence a first year ceiling of $20 million for this project was reasonable. However, after this NOFO was developed and submitted to headquarters on May 31, 2017, the Department of State Global AIDS Coordinator (S/GAC) mandated an increased funding level as well as technical specifications, benchmarks and timelines for completing this survey. The notification memorandum from S/GAC reached the OPDIV, Division of Global HIV/TB Prevention, and Nigeria on June 27, 2017. The memorandum mandates that data collection must be conducted and completed in year one, requiring over two-thirds of the funds to be obligated in year one. Report writing must be completed in year two. Therefore this project supplement is necessary to increase the award ceiling for the first year of the UMB cooperative agreement in order to comply with S/GAC mandates. UMB is already actively engaged in preparation activities include establishing survey governance structure, developing standard operating procedures and data management system, recruiting and training field workers, and conducting a pilot to further refine the survey plan. They have also begun to procure supplies, equipment, hire staff, and engage with multiple sub-partners. Additionally, they have commenced collaboration with stakeholders including the National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA) and the Global Fund through which a significant portion of laboratory commodities, supplies and vehicles have already been procured. It is absolutely necessary for these activities to continue without a break and integrate with the activities to be funded by this program expansion supplement. UMB is prepared to scale up and carryout data collection within a nine month period and has shared a detailed implementation plan.
