Deadline: 30 April 2020
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is seeking applications for “Implementing the HIV Service Cascade for Justice-Involved Populations (U01 Clinical Trial Required)”.
A quarter of all people infected with HIV pass through the justice system each year, making it an important system for HIV prevention and treatment. Community re-entry from incarceration is a time of heightened risk for opioid relapse, mortality, HIV risk behaviors, and discontinuation of HIV treatment. Given these elevated levels of risk, justice-involved people who inject drugs (PWID) should be prioritized for screening and linkage to the full continuum of HIV prevention and treatment services, including Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART).
The justice system is an important target for HIV prevention and treatment, as an estimated 25% of all people living with HIV will pass through the justice system each year. As well, a high proportion of people with opioid use disorder (OUD) and people who inject drugs (PWID) pass through the justice system each year. OUD and injection drug use elevate HIV risk.

For the purposes of this FOA, justice setting is broadly defined and is inclusive of prisons, jails, drug courts and other problem-solving courts (e.g., Driving While Impaired (DWI), family courts, veterans courts), policing and police diversion programs, transitions to secure settings from communities, transitions from secure settings to communities (i.e., re-entry), probation and parole, child welfare (particularly when there is concurrent involvement in other parts of the justice system), and juvenile justice. A key area of interest is in testing models to link justice-involved individuals with community-based HIV and OUD prevention and treatment services, recognizing the specific needs, structural challenges, and unique risks for this population. It is not the intent of this RFA to implement treatment services solely within correctional facilities.
