Additional Information on Eligibility
Only the Treatment and Research AIDS Center of Rwanda (TRAC) may submit an application. No other applications are solicited for this program. TRAC was established in 2001 to coordinate all national HIV/AIDS clinical programs in Rwanda. Its priority areas are the care and treatment of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHAs), the expansion of confidential VCT and PMTCT, and epidemiological surveillance of HIV/AIDS. Since 2001, TRAC has successfully led a massive national scale-up of confidential VCT, PMTCT and ART, which included developing standardized national norms, guidelines and tools, training trainers and service providers, and opening sites throughout the country. As a result of TRACs work, the number of people on ART in Rwanda has increased from 1,000 in 2001 to more than 19,000 currently, and PMTCT and confidential VCT are now available at more than 200 facilities throughout the country. TRAC has also improved and expanded the Rwandan national sentinel surveillance system. Under the current restructuring of the Rwandan Ministry of Health, which aims to integrate and decentralize HIV/AIDS care, TRACs responsibilities are shifting away from site-level involvement towards the development and revision of national-level HIV/AIDS policy; norms and guidelines, the training of master trainers and supervisors; and the oversight of HIV/AIDS research, monitoring and evaluation. The Ministry recently folded the national malaria and TB programs into TRAC (accordingly, TRAC is now called as "TRAC Plus"). The Rwanda Cabinet Meeting of October 12, 2005, adopted the draft law TRAC Plus, and approved TRAC Plus as a public institution under the aegis of the Ministry of Health. The legal status of TRAC Plus hinges on the Organic Law N° 14/2004 of 26/5/2004, which established the general provisions governing public institutions in Rwanda. TRAC has the financial and technical capacity to oversee the program, and has worked in successful partnership with HHS/CDC since 2003. It also has a unique Governmental mandate with respect to clinical HIV/AIDS; no other organization or agency within Rwanda has the authority to guide national clinical HIV/AIDS programs and coordinate international HIV/AIDS donors and partners. Because of its unique mandate and its demonstrated capacity to coordinate clinical HIV/AIDS services at the national level, TRAC is the only organization in Rwanda qualified to meet the requirements set forth in this announcement.
