Background and Brief Description In 1984, Congress passed Public Law 98–551 directing the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to establish Centers for Research and Development of Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. In 1986, the CDC received lead responsibility for this program, referred to as the Prevention Research Centers (PRC) Program. PRC Program awardees are managed as a CDC cooperative agreement with awards made for five years. In 2013, the CDC published program announcement DP14–001 for the current PRC Program funding cycle (September 30, 2014–September 29, 2019). Twentysix PRCs were selected through a competitive, external, peer-review process; the program is currently in its second year of the five year funding cycle. E:\FR\FM\14JAN1.SGM 14JAN1

    This is a new information collection request for 3 years of data

Thailand, as well as globally, is the epidemiology, risk factors, and 
HIV beliefs and knowledge of gay identified and transgender youth. In 
2013, UNAIDS reported that 95% of new HIV infections were in low- and 
middle-income countries, where more than one third were in young people 
(<18 years) who were unaware of their HIV status. Adolescents living 
with HIV are more

epidemic and outcomes in adolescents.
