The mayors are looking for a few good HIV/AIDS prevention strategies. The United States Conference of Mayors in cooperation with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for HIV, STD and TB Prevention, has issued a Request for Proposals for the HIV/AIDS Prevention Grants Program. Proposals will be accepted for two tracks– one must address the implementation of HIV/AIDS prevention services targeting Native Americans. Track two proposals must address the implementation of HIV/AIDS prevention services targeting African American or Hispanic Women at high risk of HIV infection.
The grants total approximately $530,000. The complete Request for Proposals can be downloaded from the USCM Web site. It’s worth noting that America’s health centers have been in the trenches on HIV/AIDs prevention. Over 400,000 patients received an HIV test at a health center last year, according to NACHC data.
