The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking concept notes for a cooperative agreement from qualified entities to implement the Service Delivery for HIV Prevention (SDHP).

The Purpose of the activity is to improve the health outcomes of Zambians by preventing new infections among priority and key populations most at risk of acquiring HIV.

This activity seeks to improve the health outcomes of Zambians by preventing new infections among priority and key populations at higher risk of acquiring HIV. For those who are unknowingly living with HIV, the activity will implement targeted case finding and link them to treatment.

Utilize This Offer

This Activity will take to scale interventions that have been known to work in ensuring that those that are HIV negative stay negative, and those living with HIV, but have not yet been identified, are found and linked to treatment.

The project will also work closely with clinical implementing partners and the government to scale up recency testing, which quickly identifies those newly infected with HIV and has proven to be effective in stemming the spread of the virus.

Only local organizations as defined below are eligible for award. USAID defines a “local entity” as an individual, a corporation, a nonprofit organization, or another body of persons that:
1. Is legally organized under the laws of Zambia; and
2. Has as its principal place of business or operations in Zambia; and
3. Is majority owned by individuals who are citizens or lawful permanent residents of Zambia; and
4. Is managed by a governing body whose majority is made of citizens or lawful permanent residents of the country receiving assistance.

In the case of a consortium, the applicant must be the consortium lead and must identify any other members of the consortium or individuals tied to the implementation of the activity as described in the application, along with all sub-awardees. The respective roles of any other members of the consortium or individuals, including all sub-awardees, must be described, and separate budgets must be attached for each. The Recipient must be a responsible entity.

USAID welcomes applications from organizations that have not previously received financial assistance from USAID.

Closing Date for Applications: March 05, 2021.
