AGENCY: HRSA will be issuing a noncompetitive award under the SPNS Program to current grantee, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Grant #5 H97HA15152–05–00), for approximately $55,000 during the budget period September 1, 2014, to August 31, 2015.

A program expansion supplement will allow SPNS wider dissemination of the most current best practices and lessons learned for the care of women of color living with HIV. The journal AIDS Patient Care and STD’s has a combined 18,200 print and online subscribers, and the publisher will also extend online distribution to readers of the Journal of Women’s Health (approximately 32,000 additional subscribers) and to attendees of the Congress on Women’s Health (approximately 800 physicians and nurses). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Intended Recipient of the Award: Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Grant #5 H97HA15152–05–00). The amount of the noncompetitive award is $55,000. CFDA Number: 93.145. Period of Supplemental Funding: September 1, 2014, through August 31, 2015. Justification: SPNS Program is charged with the development of innovative models of HIV treatment, in order to respond to emerging needs of those with HIV/AIDS, including clients served by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program. A major goal of the SPNS Program is to disseminate findings and innovative models of care and treatment to the broader HIV provider community and encourage replication of successful models/interventions. The SPNS Women of Color Initiative began September 1, 2009, and involved 11 demonstration site grantees and an Evaluation and Technical Assistance Center—the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. The Initiative enrolled 921 women of color living with HIV/AIDS in its multi-site evaluation; the findings from this initiative can improve the care of women living with HIV through the identification of best practices and lessons learned. The Albert Einstein College of Medicine has served as the Evaluation and Technical Assistance Center for the SPNS Women of Color Initiative from September 1, 2009, to the present. As such, this grantee has been tasked to lead and coordinate all dissemination activities for this initiative, and is best-positioned to lead and facilitate the publication process. This program expansion would allow PO 00000 Frm 00109 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52733 for the publication of findings from the Women of Color Initiative in the journal of AIDS Patient Care and STD’s in support of HRSA’s and HAB’s commitment to ensuring that comprehensive and effective models of care and treatment are available to underserved, un/under-insured populations, including those from communities of color.

Justification: With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, more people, including those living with HIV/AIDS, are able to access care and are being seen by providers in a variety of settings, including community health care centers. This has resulted in an increased need for primary care providers to receive training in HIV care. A program expansion supplement will allow the NWAETC to develop a comprehensive portfolio of web-based, HIV primary care distance learning and assessment resources and tools that will reach greater numbers of health care providers across the nation. This free, state-of-the-art HIV care and treatment curriculum will be evidence-based and aligned with up-to-date federal guidelines. Further, the curriculum would be accessed in an online environment that is effective at assessing HIV training needs, providing relevant, tailored training to meet those needs, and will monitor and evaluate individual and group progress throughout the curriculum. The University of Washington NWAETC, now in the fifth year of a 5-year project ending on June 30, 2015, is uniquely positioned to rapidly develop and deliver the national HIV care and treatment distance curriculum, having the necessary infrastructure for implementation already developed and in place, and having previously demonstrated the capacity to develop similar products. A distance HIV curriculum is consistent with the goals of the AETC program—to provide HIV treatment education, clinical consultation, capacity building, and technical assistance to health care professionals and agencies. An on-line HIV care and treatment training curriculum will help to better meet the HIV training needs of the current health care workforce that is working to achieve the goals of the National HIV/ AIDS Strategy (NHAS).
