Improving Sexually Transmitted Disease Programs through Assessment, Assurance, Policy Development, and Prevention Strategies (STD AAPPS)
Improving Sexually Transmitted Disease Programs through Assessment, Assurance, Policy Development, and Prevention Strategies (STD AAPPS) was developed to decrease the burden and long term health effects of STDs. STD AAPPS renews the focus on core public health functions and offers the flexibility to state and local STD programs to direct resources to areas of greatest need based on local epidemiology and health care environment. Resources can also be used to support workforce development activities to create more efficient and effective STD prevention programs that can better respond to changing priorities and emerging threats, such as antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea. The STD AAPPS funding opportunity announcement was published in June 2013 and funding for STD AAPPS will begin in January 2014.
Learn more about the funding opportunity announcement in a Dear Colleague Letter from Division of STD Prevention Director, Dr. Gail Bolan.
