Aids Fonds Call for Proposals : Improving Testing Services for People Most at Risk for HIV(Total Budget of €1.2 Millions)

Deadline: 21 June 2015

Aids Fonds is currently inviting eligible non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to submit proposals on data driven improvement of testing services for people most at risk for HIV. The programme aims to stimulate data-driven improvement of HIV testing services to increase the number of people with HIV that know their status as early as possible after infection.

Programme Objectives

  • To find innovative ways to tackle data gaps in knowledge on HIV prevalence.
  • To seek novel approaches in communicating to people most at risk for HIV, incentivizing them to know their HIV status and promote health among their peers, diagnose people living with HIV earlier in their infection, and link people to care more effectively and efficiently.
  • To identify geographical or population related ‘hotspots’ for people newly infected with HIV within a country or town.
  • To develop and implement effective testing strategies to reach people most at risk (including but not limited to outreach services, home-based testing, self-testing, routine testing in new settings, indicator condition guided testing etc.). Strategies should include strong linkages to treatment, care and support, and can also include prevention interventions.
  • To advocate for better targeted prevention and treatment services for people most at risk.
  • To stimulate partnerships between knowledge institutes, civil society organizations and governments, including innovate ways to integrate research into community outreach and services.

Eligible countries

South Africa, Nigeria, Uganda, India, Kenya, Mozambique, Russia, Indonesia, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Zambia, China, Cameroon, Malawi, and Ethiopia


For each programme a maximum budget of €300.000 is available for the duration of three years (maximum of €100.000 per year). The total available budget is approximately €1.200.000.
