SUMMARY: This program is authorized by 42 U.S.C. 300u–2(a). The mission of the Office on Women’s Health (OWH) is to promote the health of women and girls through genderspecific approaches. To that end, OWH has established activities to address critical women’s health issues nationwide. These include: Developing and implementing model public/private partnerships that address the health issues of incarcerated and newly released women, largely women of color, living with HIV/AIDS/STDs or at increased risk for sexually transmitted infections. These may include piloting a comprehensive system of health related support services, such as ensuring access to health care and most current therapies, pre-release discharge planning, case managing transition processes, and establishing linkages to various community-based support and prevention services. Funding will be directed at activities designed to improve the delivery of services to women disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS. I. Funding Opportunity Description The primary purpose of this OWH HIV/AIDS program is to increase health related support services available for PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17909 HIV infected incarcerated and newly released women. The goals for the Incarcerated/Newly Released Program are to: • Develop and sustain comprehensive HIV/AIDS/STD prevention and support services to incarcerated and newly released women living with HIV/AIDS in collaboration with health entities, care providers, social services, correctional facilities, and criminal justice offices; • Establish community linkages and networks for ensuring quality continuum of care, transitional support, discharge planning and preparation, and HIV/STD prevention services for incarcerated and newly released women living with or at high risk for HIV/AIDS; and • Improve the physical and mental health circumstances as well as the quality of life of incarcerated and newly released women living with HIV/AIDS or at high risk for HIV infection. The OWH hopes to fulfill this purpose by providing funding to targeted community-based organizations to enhance their prevention and support activities to incarcerated and newly released women living with or at high risk for HIV infection. The proposed program must address HIV prevention and support services for incarcerated and newly released women through a gender-specific approach. Information and services provided must be culturally and linguistically appropriate for the individuals for whom the information and services are intended. Women’s health issues are defined in the context of women’s lives, including their multiple social roles and the importance of relationships with other people to their lives. This definition of women’s health encompasses mental, dental, and physical health and spans the life course. The objectives of the OWH program are to: 1. Increase the number of incarcerated women receiving pre-release discharge planning, particularly those who are living with HIV/AIDS or at high risk for HIV infection. 2. Increase the number of HIV infected incarcerated women who are connected to drug assistance programs, medical care, and case management services prior to release or at time of release. 3. Increase the number of community linkages and networks for ensuring continuum of care for incarcerated and newly released women living with or at high risk for HIV/AIDS in locations with high rates of HIV infections and incarcerated populations.
