Notice of Funding Opportunity PS-24-039: Improving the Quality of Life of People with HIV Aged 50 Years and Older in the United States

Executive Summary

This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to support investigator-driven research to explore and identify factors related to quality of life (QOL) for persons with HIV aged 50 years and older (PWH50+). QOL has been recognized as an important aspect of health for people with HIV. Applicants are expected to conceive, design, develop, direct, and conduct formative qualitative and mixed method research to explore factors that impact QOL for PWH50+, translate findings into strategies to improve QOL for PWH50+, assess strategies for acceptability with PWH50+ and/or their HIV service providers, and disseminate findings to organizations and partners serving PWH50+. Findings from this NOFO are expected to contribute towards improving QOL for people with HIV and are aligned with the HIV National Strategic Plan (2022-2025) and the goals of the national Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE) initiative, “Treat” Pillar.

The goals of this NOFO are to

  • Engage PWH50+ and their providers to explore key concerns related to quality of life for persons with HIV, including factors related to physical and mental health and social determinants of health.
  • Identify acceptable strategies to improve QOL for PWH50+.
