Overview

Fiscal year (FY) 2020 Ending the HIV Epidemic—Primary Care HIV Prevention (PCHP) funding will supplement identified health centers’ current Health Center Program operational grant (H80) award. Health centers will use PCHP funding to expand HIV prevention services that decrease the risk of HIV transmission in geographic locations (PDF - 76 KB) identified by Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America, focusing on supporting access to and use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). HRSA identified eligible health centers based on service delivery site location, and either existing Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) funding or proximity to a RWHAP-funded organization.

Award recipients will achieve the following objectives:

  1. Outreach: Engage new and existing patients in HIV prevention services, identifying those at risk for HIV using validated screening tools.
  2. HIV Testing: Increase the number of new and existing patients tested for HIV.
    1. 2a. PrEP Prescriptions: For persons who test negative, provide HIV prevention education, and prescribe and support the use of clinically indicated PrEP.
    2. 2b. Linkage to Treatment: For persons who test positive, link them to HIV treatment. 
  3. Partnerships: Establish new and/or enhance existing partnerships with health departments, and community and faith-based organizations to support identification of at-risk individuals, testing, linkage to treatment, and other activities that will help achieve the PCHP purpose and objectives.
  4. Personnel: Within eight months of award, add at least 0.5 FTE personnel who will identify individuals for whom PrEP is clinically indicated and support their access to and use of PrEP.
