Funding Opportunity: Pharyngeal Gonorrhea Test of Cure (TOC) Project

Jan 19, 2021 | Rebekah Horowitz

In partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NACCHO is pleased to announce a Request for Applications (RFA) to galvanize local efforts to assess test of cure (TOC) for pharyngeal gonorrhea as a strategy to identify and prevent the spread of antimicrobial-resistant gonorrhea.

NACCHO will fund up to 4 local health departments (LHDs) up to $100,000 each to implement pharyngeal gonorrhea TOC. This implementation will provide essential information about the feasibility of implementing TOC for all pharyngeal gonorrhea cases in clinical practice. Findings will be shared broadly with STD programs across the country.

To learn more about the project and how to apply, find the full RFA here and watch a recording of our January 25 webinar for potential applicants. Applications are due February 26, 2021.
