The purpose of this program is to facilitate the development and implementation of Enhanced Comprehensive HIV Prevention Plans (ECHPPs) for MSAs most affected by the HIV epidemic in order to reduce HIV risk and incidence in those areas.
This program will be conducted in two phases.
I, which will be supported under this FOA and will have a one year project period, grantees will develop focused ECHPPs for the targeted MSAs and begin the implementation of those plans.
The plans will be guided by the best available evidence and tailored by the jurisdiction with intensive guidance from HHS/CDC.
The enhanced plans are intended to identify the optimal combination of coordinated HIV prevention, care, and treatment services that can maximize the impact of these services on reducing new HIV infections within that jursidiction.
In Phase II, which will be supported under a separate FOA, a subset of the jurisdictions funded under Phase I will be selected, through a competitive process, to further implement their Enhanced Comprehensive HIV Prevention Plans over a two year project period.
