HIV-Related Funding Opportunity: Methodologies and Formative Work for Combination HIV Prevention Approaches

This FOA invites applications to advance science that is needed for optimal HIV combination prevention intervention approaches. Recent advances in biomedical interventions with critical behavioral aspects (e.g., Pre-exposure Prophylaxis [PrEP], Treatment as Prevention) have changed how HIV prevention and treatment are conceptualized. Significant local, city, state, and federally funded efforts are shifting towards community-level interventions to reduce HIV incidence, and these efforts are informed by recent advances regarding: the importance of treatment uptake and retention in care; the effectiveness of combined behavioral and biomedical interventions; and the need to implement interventions community-wide for optimal public health impact. Reductions in HIV incidence will only be achieved through implementation of combinations of interventions that include biomedical and behavioral interventions, as well as components that address social, economic, and other structural factors that influence HIV prevention and transmission. However, combined prevention intervention approaches rely on synergies of multiple elements that can be challenging to design, implement, and evaluate. This initiative will support methodological, formative, and implementation research designed to better understand the processes and outcomes of combination intervention efforts, and that will enhance the implementation of these interventions.
