COMMUNICABLE DISEASE PREVENTION FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES

The Wyoming Department of Health, Communicable Disease Unit, provides funding opportunities for prevention activities in 2016. The mission of these funding opportunities is to increase the awareness of, and decrease the incidence of, HIV/STD/hepatitis in Wyoming.  The Communicable Disease Unit offers funding for entities to do special projects that satisfy the four components of HIV/STD/hepatitis prevention.  These components consist of:

 

   1) Increase HIV/STD/hepatitis testing

   2) Prevention with Positives

   3) Condom Distribution

   4) Policy development relating to HIV/STD/hepatitis prevention

 

All funded efforts must target one or more high risk populations identified by the Wyoming Department of Health Communicable Disease Unit, which include: Men who have sex with men (MSM), Adolescents / Young adults (ages 13 - 26), HIV positives, Injection Drug users (IDUs), and under- and uninsured individuals at risk.
