Within the maze of HIV research projects funded by HHS's National Institutes of Health are a collection designed to support Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) work. The HIV.gov blog, NIH Awards Support HIV Epidemic Research Teams Working in U.S. Communities, summarizes awards recently provided through NIH's Centers for AIDS Research (CFAR) and the NIH/NIMH AIDS Research Centers (ARC) programs.
It's well-worth the time to click into the listing of CFAR/ARC Ending the HIV Epidemic Supplement Awards to explore some of the research projects underway. Examples of newly-funded projects include:
- Implementation of an Emergency Department HIV/SUD Screening and Treatment Referral mHealth Tool for Latino Patients
- Preparing for Implementation of Strategies to Promote Uptake of Long-Acting Injectable PrEP among Black Same Gender Loving Men at Historically Black Colleges and Universities
- Using Project ECHO for the Implementation of Rapid Antiretroviral Therapy Across Five Ryan White Part A Clinics in Houston/Harris County
Projects are research-focused, but NIH does provide a list of CFAR contacts that may provide insights, particularly for EHE-inspired projects awarded in 2019.
