Title of Collaborative Activity:

HIV Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) Implementation Science in HRSA Primary Health Care Settings

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Division of AIDS Research (DAR) collaborated with the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) HIV/AIDS Bureau and Bureau of Primary Health Care to develop a research funding opportunity (NOT-MH-020-050) which aims to support implementation science on the scale-up of HIV prevention services within selected HRSA-funded health centers under the federal Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative. The funding opportunity provides one-year administrative supplements to NIH research awards that would work collaboratively with personnel at a partnering HRSA-funded health center(s) to understand and enhance their delivery of HIV testing and/or HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) by concurrently answering key research questions of import to the clinics as well as the wider HIV prevention community. Three applications were funded from this opportunity, and NIMH/DAR will continue to inform the HRSA Bureau of Primary Health Care on progress and outcomes, and plan for future collaboration.
