Show close time for other time zones
The Fifth National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Blood Borne Viruses and Sexually Transmissible Infections Strategy 2018-2022 (Indigenous BBV and STI Strategy) recognises that BBV and STI disproportionately impact Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across settings, communities and sub-populations and identifies the various factors, barriers and challenges that contribute to this increase.
This grant opportunity allows for eligible organisations to apply for funding to implement innovative, pilot projects that aim to promote prevention, treatment and/or surveillance strategies for BBVs and STIs in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations across Australia.
The objectives of the grant opportunity are to address the priority areas outlined in the Indigenous BBV and STI Strategy.
The intended outcomes of the grant opportunity are to:
* Fund a number of small scale, pilot projects that are able to be ‘scaled-up’ and implemented nationally;
* Provide for new and innovative ways to promote BBV/STI testing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals;
* Increase BBV/STI testing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals; and
* Improve and increase awareness in 15-19 year old individuals in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities about BBVs/STIs.
* You must be an Aboriginal community controlled and/or owned health organisation (that is at least 50% owned by an Indigenous operation); or an organisation (such as a school, tertiary education facility, primary health network or a general practice) that is partnered and working in collaboration with an Aboriginal community controlled health organisation.
* Your project must address one or more of the priorities from the targets of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Blood Borne Viruses and Sexually Transmissible Infections Strategy 2018-2022.
* Your project must be integrated/linked (or the ability to be) with other testing/prevention strategies such as Point of Care Testing, surveillance, media advocacy or education.
* Your project must be able to be implemented nationally at the conclusion of the pilot.
* You must be able to demonstrate innovation.
* Your project must be targeted to a location that has high rates of BBVs/STIs.
* You must be able to demonstrate capability/your ability to deliver against set milestones in previously awarded grant opportunities.
