2015 RfP - Data-driven improvement of testing services for people most at risk for HIV

2015 RfP - Data-driven improvement of testing services for people most at risk for HIV


Targeted testing with innovative ways to identify people most at risk
To identify HIV infections earlier, testing should be better targeted towards certain geographical areas or populations most at risk. Through this call for proposals we would like to find innovative ways to tackle data gaps and to seek novel approaches in identifying people most of risk for HIV, to be able to implement a strategy to reach those people with HIV testing services. This can be done by collecting new data or by a better use of existing data. To stimulate innovative data use and to be sure that this data will be actually used to improve HIV services, we call for combined applications from a knowledge institute and a civil society organization providing HIV services.

The main goal for all programs under this call should be to find more people with HIV that don’t know their status yet, and to find them earlier. With this call for proposals Aids Fonds aims to stimulate data-driven improvement of HIV testing services to increase the number of people with HIV that know their status as early as possible after infection. This includes the following objectives:
- To find innovative ways to tackle data gaps in knowledge on HIV prevalence and incidence.
- To seek novel approaches in communicating to people most at risk for HIV, incentivizing them to know their HIV status and promote health among their peers, diagnose people living with HIV earlier in their infection, and link people to care more effectively and efficiently.
- To identify geographical or population related ‘hotspots’ for people newly infected with HIV within a country or town
- To develop and implement effective testing strategies to reach people most at risk (including but not limited to outreach services, home-based testing, self-testing, routine testing in new settings, indicator condition guided testing etc.). Strategies should include strong linkages to treatment, care and support, and can also include prevention interventions.
- To advocate for better targeted prevention and treatment services for people most at risk
- To stimulate partnerships between knowledge institutes, civil society organizations and governments, including innovate ways to integrate research into community outreach and services.
