Cooperative Agreements to Improve the Health and Educational Outcomes of Young People

CDC supports 16 national nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) to provide capacity-building assistance to education and health agencies, community-based organizations, institutions of higher education, and other organizations to improve health and educational outcomes among children and adolescents.

Promoting Adolescent Health Through School-Based HIV/STD Prevention and School-Based Surveillance is intended to provide effective capacity building assistance to support sustainable initiatives in districts and schools that contribute to reductions in HIV/STD infections among adolescents, and reductions in disparities in HIV/STD infections experienced by specific adolescent sub-populations. NGOs funded under Strategy 3, Capacity Building Assistance for School-Based HIV/STD Prevention, are expected to provide capacity building assistance for education agencies on one of three approaches: exemplary sexual health education, school health services, and safe and supportive environments. NGOs funded under Strategy 4, School-Centered HIV/STD Prevention for Young Men Who Have Sex with Men (YMSM), are expected to implement multiple program activities to meet the HIV/STD prevention needs of YMSM based on jurisdictional data, and to develop strategic partnerships and collaborations between schools and community-based, mental health, and social services organizations to accomplish this work. The following NGOs received funding through CDC-RFA-PS13-1308:

Capacity Building Assistance for School-Based HIV/STD Prevention



School-Centered HIV/STD Prevention for Young Men Who Have Sex with Men (YMSM)

CDC’s National Programs to Improve the Health and Educational Outcomes of Young People (CDC RFA DP11-1101) and National Organizations for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (CDC RFA DP10-1008) fund eight NGOs to help schools and communities create an environment that fosters wellness and encourages healthy choices. NGOs provide capacity-building assistance to health and education agencies, community-based organizations, institutions of higher education, and other organizations. The program supports components of a coordinated school health (CSH) approach through systems and environmental change strategies in the areas of food allergy management, physical activity, nutrition, tobacco use prevention, and professional development.
