Funding Opportunity Number: RFA DD05–118. Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Number: 93.283. Key Dates: Letter of Intent Deadline: June 16, 2005. Application Deadline: July 1, 2005. I. Funding Opportunity Description Authority: This program is authorized under sections 307, 317(k)(2), and 317(C) of the Public Health Service Act [42 U.S.C., sections 242(I), 247b(k)2 and 247b–4], as amended]. Purpose: The purpose of this program is to: (a) Identify urban and rural communities in South Africa with high proportions of childbearing-aged women who are at risk for an alcohol exposed pregnancy that could result in Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS); and (b) to develop a model prevention program aimed at reducing hazardous alcohol use and/or promoting pregnancy delay until alcohol abuse is resolved in those women at highest risk. The model prevention program should have three stages. PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Stage 1: The formative research stage is composed of qualitative and quantitative research documenting the knowledge, attitudes and practices among all groups described: (a) Women of childbearing-age at high risk of an alcohol-exposed pregnancy and women with children with FAS: (b) spouses and partners of high risk women; (c) community health care providers, obstetricians and nurses, especially providers including alcohol treatment and substance abuse services; and (d) community leaders, social support organizations and networks addressing use of alcohol in pregnancy, use of contraception, knowledge of FAS, as well as issues such as identification of services and barriers to services. The formative research will conclude with a description of the sociodemographic characteristics and attributes of the targeted community(ies) at risk, identification of constraints and opportunities for behavior change, and allow the initiation and conduct of community and person-level interventions under Stage 2. Stage 2: This protocol and intervention development stage will use the information gathered in Stage 1 in combination with previous evidencebased research in FAS and HIV prevention in the U.S. and South Africa to develop a model intervention. Stage 3: This stage will test the feasibility of the model program in the high risk FAS community(ies) targeted by the applicant in this announcement, including outcome measures. Measurable outcomes of the program will be in alignment with the following performance goal for the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD): Prevent birth defects and developmental disabilities. Background and Research Objectives: FAS is caused by maternal alcohol use during pregnancy and is one of the leading causes of preventable birth defects and disabilities. Recently, the highest prevalence of FAS worldwide was reported among children living in the winery area of the Western and Northern Cape region of South Africa with FAS prevalence rates ranging from 40.5 to 46.4 per 1,000 children. In the Gauteng region of South Africa (outside the wine-growing region) FAS prevalence rates range from 11.8 to 41.0 per 1,000 children. In addition, CDC has implemented a monitoring system in the area of De AAR, where the FAS prevalence rate was ù80 per 1,000 live births. These rates show that FAS is a serious public health problem in some areas or subgroups of the South African population. E:\FR\FM\17MYN1.SGM 17MYN1
