HIV Activities

CDC supports two funding opportunities that include perinatal HIV activities:

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to implement a comprehensive HIV surveillance and prevention program to prevent new HIV infections and achieve viral suppression among persons living with HIV.

Perinatal HIV prevention and surveillance activities include:

  • Prenatal HIV testing of all pregnant women according to CDC recommendations
  • Case surveillance activities for women and children <13 years of age with diagnosed HIV infection
  • Annual matching of HIV-infected women reported to surveillance to the state birth registry, where laws and regulations allow
  • Analysis and dissemination of data on HIV-infected women of childbearing age, perinatal HIV exposures as determined from matching with the birth registry, and HIV-infected infants
  • Required activities in a subset of jurisdictions
      • Perinatal HIV Exposure Reporting (PHER), where laws and regulations allow
      • Perinatal HIV Services Coordination (PHSC) to address local issues that lead to missed perinatal HIV surveillance and prevention opportunities
      • Case review and community action using the FIMR-HIV Prevention Methodology
PS17-1712 Assuring Comprehensive Prevention and Treatment for Families Affected by HIV to Eliminate Perinatal HIV Transmission in the United States

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to maintain the gains in the prevention of perinatal HIV transmission in the United States and to improve maternal and child health along the HIV prevention and care continuums. This project will update CDC’s Framework for the Elimination of Mother-to-Child HIV Transmission, develop strategies for jurisdictions to describe progress in elimination of perinatal HIV infection, convene a group of stakeholders to implement the updated Framework, and develop broader educational and best-practice-sharing networks.

Activities include:

  • Update CDC’s Framework for the Elimination of Mother-to-Child HIV Transmission (EMCT)
  • Develop and disseminate strategies for jurisdictions to describe progress in elimination of perinatal HIV infection using measures identified in updated EMCT Framework
  • Convene a stakeholder group representing a broad network of public health professionals and clinical care providers to implement the updated EMCT Framework
  • Develop educational and best-practice-sharing networks of the perinatal HIV prevention workforce including clinical care providers and public health professionals
