Enhancing Strategic Information Capacity for HIV/AIDS Programs in Kenya through Surveillance and Epidemiology, Monitoring and Evaluation and Mobile Health Solutions under the U.S. President's 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 NOFO. This announcement will also support Global Fund implementing partners in assessing HIV service delivery and will develop technical assistance plans and strategies. This NOFO 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 NOFO 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
- CDC Kenya had issued a NOFO#: CDC-RFA-GH15-1543. This funding opportunity included three program areas: · (A) Surveillance and Epidemiology · (B) Monitoring and Evaluation · (C) mHealth Program areas A and B were awarded to University of California and San Francisco (UCSF) while program C was awarded to mHealth Kenya. CDC Kenya will extend the mHealth Coag for one year to align all Health Information Systems program activities to facilitate patient centric care and ability to be fully responsive to the evolving epidemic’s system’s needs. Specifically, electronic medical records (EMRs) and mobile-based applications to be interoperable and to evolve at the same pace. The ability to interoperate these digital health solutions has been a challenge because the EMR based activities have been under a different mechanism than the mobile-based ones. Ensuring interoperability of these solutions would be much smoother if they are all under the purview of one partner overseeing their development and maintenance. To achieve this alignment to best serve CDC’s support to the HIV program in Kenya, we propose merging the following projects: - mHealth (mobile health) scope under mHealth Kenya mechanism (CDC CoAg #52U2GGH001519-03), in which Mobile based work ends in September 2020 - KenyaHMIS II project under Palladium mechanism (CDC CoAg # NU2GGH001955-01-01), where all work related with EMRs end in September 2021 For the alignment to work, we will extend the mHealth project by one year (i.e., to end in September 2021) which would coincide with the end of the KenyaHMIS II project, while we write a comprehensive HIS NOFO that will encompass all the HIS related activities. Organizations could then respond effectively to this integrated scope of work when applying through open competition.
