This HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau webinar reviewed the RFP funding to support a new initiative entitled, Using Innovative Intervention Strategies to Improve Health Outcomes among People with HIV (2iS). Funding is for implementation sites. During this webinar, sites will be introduced to the CCTA, review components of the RFP, learn about SalesForce, and ask questions.
This initiative will apply the HRSA HAB implementation science framework to pilot test innovative intervention strategies at up to 20 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP)-funded organizations.
The goal of the 2iS initiative is to improve health outcomes among people with HIV in three priority populations and one area of service delivery which include:
- People with Substance Use Disorder (SUD)
- Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) youth
- People who are or have been justice involved
- Using Telehealth Services
TFI and AU will serve as the Coordinating Center for Technical Assistance (CCTA) for the 2iS Initiative and will select, issue, monitor, and provide TA to each of the subawarded 2iS implementation sites. Each site will receive a maximum annual award of up to $190,000 over three (3) years.
The evaluation center is UCSF, Center for AIDS Prevention Studies.
