COMMUNICABLE DISEASE PREVENTION FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES

The Wyoming Department of Health, Communicable Disease Unit, will be providing funding opportunities for HIV focused prevention activities in 2014. The mission of these funding opportunities is to increase the awareness of, and decrease the incidence of, HIV in Wyoming.  The Communicable Disease Unit will be offering funding for entities to do special projects that satisfy the four components of HIV prevention.  These components consist of:

 

   1) Increasing HIV testing (can be in conjunction with STD testing)

   2) Prevention with Positives

   3) Condom Distribution

   4) Policy development relating to HIV prevention

 

All funded efforts must target one or more high risk populations identified by the Wyoming Department of Health Communicable Disease Unit, which include: Men who have sex with men (MSM), Adolescents / Young adults (ages 13 - 26), HIV positives, and Injection Drug users (IDUs)
