Funding Opportunity Number: RFA-DA-25-059
Deadline: August 20, 2024
The purpose of this notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) is to address research gaps in understanding how to improve health outcomes among persons who are at heightened risk for HIV or living with HIV, Hepatitis, and substance use in the US, and to inform novel strategies for integrating primary care, HIV, Hepatitis, and substance use disorder (SUD) prevention and treatment services. Research is sought that will leverage existing resources available to public health researchers to develop and test new methods and models for implementing prevention and treatment services to improve care for at risk individuals. The NOFO will support research that promotes scalable strategies of integrated care and services designed to improve health outcomes related to HIV, Hepatitis B and C (optional) and SUD. Research applications must incorporate HIV/AIDS and SUD outcomes and the HIV/AIDS outcomes should address the HIV prevention and care continuum (i.e., care engagement, antiretroviral adherence, viral suppression), the SUD outcomes should incorporate utilization of screening, prevention services, and referral to pharmacotherapies as appropriate (e.g., all three FDA-approved medications for opioid use disorders). The inclusion of Hepatitis B and/or Hepatitis C in integrated care and services research to improve outcomes in applications is optional. Hepatitis outcomes of interest include Hepatitis B and C screening, Hepatitis B vaccination, and/or Hepatitis C treatment.
